  1. QLD IS THE ONLY STATE THAT DIDN'T PAY FOR DISASTER INSURANCE AS it cost too much

    THE BIGGEST JOKE OF ALL after the Brisbane so called flooding disaster…We'll wait for the Inquiry to decide that…WAS THAT QLD STATE GOVT THOUGHT IT WAS A BIT TOO MUCH TO BOTHER PAYING FOR….DISASTER INSURANCE…OMG…how many people have been belittled as they were too cheap or lazy or poor to have PROPER FLOOD COVERAGE since it all started…now…we are told the STATE GOVT IS TOO CHEAP TO PAY FOR THEIR INS…..and guess what…gee…do you not think now WHY BLIGH IS PRETENDING TO PLEAD FOR THE SAKE OF THE POORRRRR QLD PEOPLE…bu sh…NOW…THEY JUST WAIT FOR EVERY AUSSIE & STATE who took out their own Ins as an intelligent decent person/State would do…TO PAY FOR ALL THEIR NEW INFRASTRUCTURE

    hmmmm

    funny/sad/pathetic that most of those States can't even squeeze enough out of FED GOVT for decent HOSPITALS

    Don't worry

    While you suffer as the Hospital can't afford pain meds

    You should feel sooooo much joy in the fact that FEDERAL $$$$$$$$$ ARE BEING SIPHONED OFF TO HELP A STATE THAT DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO PAY FOR DISASTER/FLOOD INSURANCE ITSELF

    I just hope you feel better if you donated

    Soon you will be paying the levy on top of that

    STOP BLAMING THE INSURANCE COMPANIES

    They run a business and all people buying their cover are ADULTS

    Don't blame them if you are too stupid or lazy to make sure you ask every tiny question of them….no matter how long it takes…IF THEY TRY TO BLOW YOU OFF

    THIS IS THE 21st CENTURY!!!!!

    HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW OF small print by now???????

  2. the ringer from the says:

    If only? Australia had its own supper bank and we had control of it.I dont know how much we pay in supper every week? Goldie locks could fix the the flood damage road rail ports. At a low interest rate that is.

  3. It has already started by just everyday people. If this is global warming then i guess 1893 must have been one hot planet. The reality is these affects happen every few years as scientist suggest. It doesn't feel any hotter to me!! Don't you love how the government made a $20 000 000 contribution? Bull they did. Us Australian made that contribution because we pay government, not the other way around. People still think government own us. Love how the lord Mayor has said we need to get back to work to keep the economy going. Yep sure, are we a little bit scared Lord Mayor that us pheasants won't be able to fill your pockets with cash? Oh and i remember ABC childcare getting a $30 000 000 boost from government but of course they went down. Yep us pheasants are only worth $20 000 000. Don't you love how we pay all this tax and fees and regos and all other crap but still we also supply the victims with a donation as well. Not that we care but we pay for everything, government pay nothing. All they do is take there greedy cut when the dollars go around. Goes in at $10 000 000 comes out at $5 000 000.

    Those poor people, government have started flood relief. So generous that $500 per fortnight will help, and they still have to be on unemployment so that means they will have to look for work when there jobs were just taken because greedy insurance agencies will not pay up. Then we will pay for that too by insurance rates increases. Yep we live in a fine country or world as every other country is the same.

  4. The government is then going to start saying that this is the result of global warming. How could the APP respond to that?
