My mum used Gladwrap when it first came out to stop strong smells going throughout the fridge.

I think today, our Glad, is doing something similar: 1. Her boyfriend (?) Maguire was forced out of the Liberal Party, and politics, by his secret girlfriend, the premier, following his involvement in a separate corruption enquiry in 2018. That enquiry heard evidence of Maguire’s use of his public office for private gain and he continued this behaviour as well as their relationship

2. The secret $53m Sydney land deal that left NSW taxpayers with an even bigger clean-up bill. The NSW government paid three times the $15.5m the Valuer-General said the land was worth. Remediation at the site could be as high as $200m. The lucky property company, Billbergia, made $15mill in seven months for owners, John and Bill Kinsella.

3. The NSW government has been accused of short-changing Western Sydney, selling off land to developers but not putting enough money back in. New figures reveal thousands of government-owned properties worth $4 billion have been sold in just five years.

4. Keeping isolated while waiting two hours for COVID test results – NOT!

5. Conceding $140m was pork barrelling but wait, it’s apparently not illegal!

No matter how much she wriggles and lets the mud slide off her Gladwrapped figure, no matter whether it is not ‘illegal,’ it leaves her, a ‘leader’ displaying absolutely no ethics nor morals. Bring on the next election!

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Richard, I agree with all that you say regarding Glad – & I now have another
    ‘Something Rotten’ that I spotted floating through the net that I am passing
    on [it’s got nothing to do with Glad]. At first I thought ‘It’s got to be trash’
    because I heard sections of a full on discussion regarding the treatment &
    deaths due to the Pandemic. Not so… apparently there is a treatment that’s
    been around for years that is now being used in the poorer countries to
    halt the spread since August. This stuff is well known to all GPs. Its simply
    called IVERMECTION. If you type in that name & ask if it is being used
    to treat ‘the virus’ due to the ‘speech before Congress’ you’ll hear & see
    what it’s all about. Science & Specialists are calling for it to be used. Sur-
    names of medicos are Dr Korey, Borody & Dean to name a few.

    • I’m afraid that our parasitic ‘Not my Glad’ NSW State Government is seemingly immune to any form of cleansing treatment. Blame it on the punters that keep voting for Rotten Governing, ‘Not my Glad’ & co just obliges, giving the punters what they want, more ROT.

  2. Andrew, I did NOT get my information from Sky bloody so-called News but I
    do know that mad dogs, some Englishmen, & too damn many Aussies watch
    it at their peril. Re-read what I said – ‘speech before Congress’ – that is where
    my connection came from. Later on ‘the heavenly channel’ splashed it about.

  3. Add on – my ‘spelling is correct. Now, go search the ‘speech before Congress’
    & discover how wide its use has been & the belief that all ‘big pharma’ are
    doing the crash for cash as usual.

    ABOUT… 8/12/2020 if you don’t want to watch & listen then you
    have many other leading articles by the same specialists. Over & out.
