The impact of the 2019/ 2020 Australian wildfires has been devastating and if anything appears to be getting worse. The UK and Australia have a long history, and many of us have friends and family in Australia. It seems crazy that we are not now sending firefighters, troops and aid to help fight the blazes, help with rescue and evacuations, and help stop any further devastation as much as possible to the beautiful flora and fauna of Australia.

We can't expect the amazing mostly volunteer fire and rescue services in Australia to have to sustain this on their own given the unprecedented scale of this emergency throughout Australia. They are only human and it's about time the UK government sent support both practical and financial, and also follow the example of countries like New Zealand, USA, Canada, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, and Vanuatu who have already offered or sent firefighters, equipment, and offered monetary support!
