Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has consistently been blamed for his delaying tactics in tackling both the bushfires and their aftermath: dozens killed, thousands of homes destroyed, and unique species including koalas literally pushed to the brink of extinction.
Former playboy model Azzra Hughes, who has a record of drug possession charges, is thinking of challenging Morrison and his cabinet.

"Because her hometown Cobargo was affected by the fires, she saw how little the prime minister did for that, and she's thinking about getting into politics so she could make a difference herself", the model's lawyer Campbell MacCallum told reporters on Thursday outside court, according to the Daily Mail.
Hughes repeatedly made headlines in local media last year after Australian police found cocaine in her home, during an anti-drug raid.
On Thursday, the former playboy model was summoned to court regarding a recent incident in which Hughes crashed her vehicle into a parked car, the Daily Mail said. Hughes reportedly pleaded guilty to nine charges, including drug offences and driving without due care and attention.
