Over the last few days NSW politics has had something more of a adjustment. After the Premier quit a week ago, we now have a former garbage man as NSW’s top man.
There’s been hurt egos, spilt blood and no doubt split factions within the ALP in NSW at least as well as over in Western Australia.
Nathan Rees does seem to be saying the right things, acknowledging the “soap opera” as he put it within hours of becoming the leader for example. He is warning tough times, both for the State and for NSW Labor. I guess we’ll see what happens. They are coming from a long way behind. Shifting chairs on the Titanic perhaps? Hope not.
The worst part of all this: a new Minister for Disability to work out and try to bring up to speed. I’m in a different level of government but there is flow on.
