HoWARd not the go-to-guy that survivors had hoped for.

Yesterday Australian tsunami victims criticised the Federal Government, saying it failed to send additional flights or support to help hundreds of nationals stranded on the Thai island of Phuket.

"There was nothing from Australia. We were just left standing there."
"I just got the feeling if it wasn't something to do with terrorism and if (Prime Minister) John Howard couldn't get political mileage out of it, then why bother."


Update:
A Virgin Blue flight, donated by the company, flew out of Canberra last night with extra consular staff.
