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.
