Could be wrong but I think it is the same guy that owned the winery that is now claiming his son was assaulted by police, doesn't take much imagination to work out what happened there, he seems to have his head in take at every chance he gets
I'd say 2 sides.... and yea, seems to pop up more than Eddie Maguire..


this one?

Some of the 'saves'.

I agree with his comments about being prepared for a fire. 

"All of these buildings below have one thing in common, the property owners had spent time to prepare for the potential of bush fire.
Cleaning up, cutting back vegetation, clearing gutters of debris, watering the surrounding gardens to create a safe zone, ensuring driveways are accessable to fire trucks and having dedicated fire fighting water supplies on site."

"I'll be blunt, if you don't attempt to prepare your property for the event of bushfire and allow years of overgrowth to build up making it unsafe for crews to defend, don't expect a fire crew to chose to turn up your drive and fight to save your home and their own lives."


Shame the 'owners' and 'managers' of Public Lands can't do the same.

The thing is, the prep doesnt start when theres a report of a fire, its an ongoing thing to keep things in check 365 days.

That was the same at the Riddles Creek fires a few years ago, just about every house was a very small green oasis surrounded by black. I only seen one house and one shed burnt and they were both closely surrounded by old tall trees and rubbish everywhere.
