Gillard hardly poser for visits to fire areas

TRANGE to see a letter in the Hobart Mercury describing Prime Minister Julia Gillard as a “poser” for visiting fire-ravaged areas in Tasmania. 

I wonder how The Leader readers feel about Ms Gillard’s visit to northern NSW?

She is attending community meetings, speaking to firefighters and seeing the incinerated remains of homes and properties for herself.

Do many of your readers see her as a “poser”? 

The heatwave conditions, assuring locals and attending meetings with community leaders must be very draining, both physically and emotionally. 

The Hobart Mercury letter’s author should look beyond politics to the human impact of bushfires.

Valuing the work of passionate and dedicated politicians is the responsibility of every Australian. 

Thank you, Ms Gillard, for your visit to us in northern NSW.
