Australia needs our help now

IS the British government doing anything to help the poor people of Queensland, in Australia with any sort of financial help like they have done with the Pakistan Flood Relief Fund and the Asian Earthquake Fund?

There are many ex-pats over there. I have family there myself, not only are people losing there livesir the crops, animals, businesses and homes it's devistating for wildlife too.

Australia deserves help just as others did and I feel the goverment is too slow in responding.

Are any plans in the pipeline to help as this seemed to be the only budget increased in the recent Budget? Australia deserves a big slice.

Are there any funds being set up where people can donate?
