To remind you what you actually said:

You really must try harder.
I will try again Brucy!
That lowly saw mill manager's opinion makes more sense to me
than any other opinion l have seen yet in the media and most of
what l have heard on this forum,(note the word MOST )
I see your much maligned PM has now admitted mistakes were made
in the handling of the fires, so you now have some hope of correcting
those mistakes in the future, if you dont know you made a mistake
you will never correct that mistake, would you agree to that??
The mistakes your PM alludes to were caused by previous mistakes
made dating back + -- 20 yrs ago in the way the forests and bush
were managed? None of this is the fault of the fire services, they
simply had to deal with the results of faulty forestry management
Laws and fines etc are fine as far as they go, but the main factor in
fire prevention is the forest housekeeping quality?
Another thing is the difference between forest and bush, bush is
usually the initial kindling for the forest fires, and as such it needs
clearing on a regular basis to prevent deadwood build up!
I can go on for quite a while on this subject but l think you have
enough to digest for now?
However l wish you all good luck out there it is heartbreaking to
see what you have done to paradise! And if you want anymore advice
on ANYTHING let me know?
