  1. Remember to thank Gladys *koalakiller* Berejiklian for everything.

  2. Only NSW, and only those who are either self-employed or work for ‘small business’ (with no definition on what actually counts in that).

    This is just an attempt to save face without actually doing anything, Scummo and his government are still a pack of miscreant wankstains.

  3. Enjoy ya fireworks Australia ya fuckin nincompoops

  4. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-50932729) reduced by 82%. (I’m a bot)

    > Volunteer firefighters in New South Wales will get compensation for loss of earnings after spending time away from jobs to battle bushfires in the state, Australia's federal government says.

    > Earlier this month two volunteer firefighters – both young fathers – were killed when a tree fell on their truck as they drove towards a massive fire in the state.

    > "This is not about paying volunteers. It is about sustaining our volunteer efforts by protecting them from financial loss.”
