Lemon Myrtle Rust

I've been looking at this for a while because of the Tea Tree Industry and the 4wd groups have been concerned.

Now it looks as though it's out of control and a huge threat to so many of our native species of flora.

I'm appalled that a nursery was allowed to import a plant with this disease and wonder what happened to our quarantine, or is it because we had to move the bar down for the US free trade agreement?
