Staying true to form Peter Dutton deflected any criticism away from himself and ineffect placed it on the ADF by saying “I’m just not going to cop criticism of the ADF,”. Proving he has risen to be Australia’s worst-ever Defense Minister. Private helicopters flew into areas Dutton said were too difficult for the ADF. Food and supplies trucked in to where Dutton said it was too dangerous. What Dutton did say was “go fund yourselves”!!
Lismore and other flood-affected communities have stepped up to manage their own clean-up, with many accusing the army of not doing enough to help people who have lost everything. On Sunrise, Davie Koch (‘Kochie’) latched on to community anger by accusing Defence Minister Peter Dutton of organising too little, too late. “God help us. If we were going to war, we wouldn’t stand a chance if it took this long to get organised,” Kochie said on Tuesday morning. “What’s going on? Why aren’t they there quicker?”
Although there were only 760 pairs of boots on the ground at the time of the Tuesday morning interview, Mr Dutton pledged 5000 personnel in the coming days.
“I’m just not going to cop criticism of the ADF,” Mr Dutton said.
