Berejiklian implosion

Now that politics in NSW has taken a huge lurch to the Right, I'm very surprised as Sydney was always the progressive, less moral city and Melbourne, the conservative city. The tables have turned completely and Premier Dan who belongs to the socialist left of the Labor party, hence caring for people and to a lesser degree business over state budgets, whereas Premier Dom is to the far right of the political spectrum, so he''' be relying on the deeply conservative religious vote such as the Muslims and the mainstream religious followers to be re-elected. and prioritising the condition of the NSW state budget like it's his 5th or 6th child.

NSW is also the only state NOT to have enacted euthanasia, dying with dignity legislation and I can't see that getting up in a hurry now.

To put a rail flavour to it. Pre the XPT, there was for a few years an amalgamation of the former Southern Aurora and Spirit of Progress overnight trains to the Sydney Express and the Melbourne Express. These names were shortened to the SeX and the MeX.

SeX for the then obvious reasons, Kings Cross etc and MeX for Melbourne because it was south of the border IE Mexico.

I must say, the reaction by many towards Gladys's resignation has been rather strange, considering that she resigned in the wake of a corruption scandal.
Strange situations aside, the popularity of the state liberals will almost certainly slide further and further downwards in the wake of Gladys's resignation and the appointment of Perrottet.

I'm on the side of Chris Minns with regards to the resignation of Constance and Barilaro, could they have picked a worse time to resign. I can somewhat understand why Constance left, he had stated his intention of doing so previously.
On the other hand, John Barilaro tried to blame a large portion of why he left on a comedian/journalist (that he is suing for deformation) and his "Vile and racist statements." Craig Reucassel approached John Howard with a damn axe and still managed to receive a hug, friendlyjordies posted videos on alleged corruption while poking fun at some aspects of Barilaro, he was then sued and had one producer violently arrested by counter terrorism police.
It does not matter what opinion any person has on friendlyjordies, in no situation is it acceptable for any politician (regardless of rank) to use counter terrorism police against a person who speaks out against their actions. That ticks all the boxes for meeting one of the legal definitions of corruption (Using public resources for personal gain.)
The biggest shame about John Barilaro resigning is that he will almost certainly never face consequences for his actions or corruption.

Gladys was loved by many people, perhaps less by politicians on both sides and her unfortunate entanglement with the Member for Wagga Wagga only proved to many that she is human, with human feelings and she was apparently single and looking when she fell in love with that guy.

We all feel for people who've had unfortunate relationships including me and I would never have voted for her as she's not from my political side of the fence. ICAC's sudden determination to pursue the corruption matter which couldn't wait as it's mandated to undertake its role at the appropriate time when the legalities are aligned.

I hope at 50, that Gladys, her personal life and other corruption matters laid bare for all to glare at and examine can get herself back on track...but I'm not confident.

Dom Perrottet elected NSW Premier. Far right religious nut, all down hill from here to the federal election then oblivion at the state election.

Clueless.

Mike.
What's wrong with him in your opinion, not differing with you, I just want to know.

Religious nutter, homophobe, climate change denier, not a big fan of COVID-19 lockdowns. IE the economy is more important than the lives of the electorate and not in favour of renewable energy...just your usual far right wing stuff.

Against abortion, against assisted dying, and I believe also against mandatory reporting of child abuse by religious institutions.

Also, this beauty of a quote from a Sky News "reporter":  The Australian’s media writer Sophie Elsworth says the media discussion of Treasurer Dominic Perrottet’s Catholicism is “totally inappropriate”.

This guy wants to tell others how to live and die but it's not ok to talk about what he believes in.

I don't see it that way at all.  It's certainly not anti-Catholic, but warns of the danger of the more extreme Christian fundamentalists, which can encompass all religious faiths.  The SMH article even points out the ongoing friction within the Catholic Church itself between the Progressives and Conservatives.  It's got nothing to do with sectarian divisions.  The author herself is an inter-faith Minister.

The Christian fundamentalists are a dangerous lot, who will seek to impose their beliefs on the rest of community if given the reins of power.  You only have to look at the effect they have on United States' politics and that's the last thing I want to see happen here.  I don't deny them the right to voice their opinions, but they don't have the right to expect everyone else to conform with their view of the world.  No one is going to force them to have an abortion or consent to assisted dying for example.  They still have the free will to refrain and it's no business of theirs if anyone else acts within the laws passed for the benefit of the broader community.

I do find it amusing though how the likes of Perrottet and Morrison are such hypocrites when it comes to following their religious beliefs in caring for their fellow man (or woman).  Both are guilty of shafting colleagues to further their political careers while professing to be virtuous citizens.  Give me someone who calls a spade a spade without any pretense any day of the week.

So when Adam Goodes leaves football after a career of being called an "Ape", "Baboon" or even "Black C***", he is standing up for himself and fighting Racism, and applauded for being a role model. But if a Liberal politician objects to being called "Big fat Wog C***", "A Greasy Ned Kelly" or "A conman to the core, powered by spaghetti" and resigns, he hasn't had enough of the racist character assassination, he's actually fleeing the consequences of his actions?

Friendlyjordies is the one who is avoiding the consequences. His legal defence is being paid for by crowdfunding, it's not costing him a thing. How good's that? Whatever, speak to my lawyer. He's not being held to account for HIS actions. But if Christian Porter relies on crowdfunding, he's corrupt and must resign.

Dominic Perrottet is hardly the first Premier of NSW who is Catholic. By my take, there have been about a dozen before him (depends upon what threshold of religiosity you set and whether you count non-practising Catholics or not, which is hard to do objectively). The first was Patrick Jennings, Premier from 26 February 1886 to 19 January 1887.

Seriously, dog-whistling? Anti-Catholic? I don't see people criticizing him because he is Catholic. Its more because he is a Christian Fundamentalist. A right-wing tosser in other words.

If he gets roundly criticised for his views, good. A man who probably that thinks that people like Sir Ian McKellan, Miriam Margoyles, Penny Wong and Reg Livermore should not walk this earth because they are gay.

There is more to being Christian than quoting passages out of the Bible.

Yes, Father Bob, Father in name only now as the Catholic church kicked him out due to his age, is a rare exception.

The loss of Father Bob from the Catholic Church is a huge loss. He is a true Christian and Catholic. A kind man with empathy,  not Bible thumping twits like Morrison and Perrotet.

No I haven't forgotten Stephen Fry and Sir Elton John. I just named 2 from the UK and 2 Aussies. And Fry and John are fantastic too. Stephen Fry one of the most cleverest and sharpest minds on earth and a amazing musician in John and people like Perrotet will think they are better because they think that Gods own are only straight people.

And booed and jeered in WA, vilified by sections of the press and treated appallingly and left hung to dry by the AFL. He should be lauded as a role model, because he would have been subjected to being disrespected nearly every day of his life for being Indigenous. In his own country.

Totally wrong that he has been subjected to that disgusting racist crap. But why equate him to Adam Goodes? He is just a mediocre pollie. If he has resigned because of some rubbish written about him by some a**hole of a kid, then he is soft.

That I do not believe. He is just trying to shift the attention from his alleged corruption.

It will be interesting to see if Barilaro is called as a witness at Gladys' ICAC investigation.  Perhaps that's what he's really worried about.  He and Gladys probably know more about what evidence the ICAC has, which so far hasn't been publicly released, but are sworn to secrecy.  Otherwise it seems strange that both also resigned from Parliament, rather than just standing aside from the Ministry pending the outcome of the investigation.

He may be a mediocre politician, many are, but they're just people going to work like anyone else. They don't have to be abused by something that thinks they have the right to fling mud and while they themselves are untouchable. His children don't have to hear that about their father.

If Friendlyjordies "Honestly believes" that Barilaro is corrupt and has "amassed a personal fortune by stealing from Local Councils" (!!) and should be in jail, then he should make a complaint to the Ombudsman, Electoral Commission or ICAC (even the Police) along with the evidence he has. Until that has happened, there is no "Alleged" corruption, because no allegations have been made.

Further to my previous post, I've just learned that John Barilaro and new Deputy Liberal Leader Stuart Ayres have both been  summonsed to give evidence as witnesses before the ICAC investigation into Gladys Berejiklian's conduct.  No word from Ayres, but doesn't Barilaro's resignation within a matter of days after seem a strange co-incidence?  This so far hasn't been widely reported in the media.  The plot thickens.

You don't have to endure abuse for years, or for any minimum length of time, before you're allowed to say "I don't have to put up with this". How do you know the impact that this might have had on him and his family? "Dad, everyone's saying you're a fat wog c***.

I don't think he deserves "Special Mention" either, whatever that is. I don't propose awarding him a "Victim of racism" Medal. But I fully support him deciding to quit a job if he thinks the BS is having an effect on him or his family. I don't get why you think he needs to harden up, remain in the seat, and cop more smeg as if will be good for him or something.
