Corruption, neither noble, nor unavoidable, nor the fault of the ICAC – the NSW premier messed up!

Our premier has resigned because of the need to establish her involvement in high-level corruption involving millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money, and whether she helped to misappropriate any.

Take that together with the blatantly admitted ‘pork-barrelling’ by her Deputy, Mr Barilaro, which is nothing other than using our hard-earned money to try to buy their own re-election. It shows the contempt of this NSW government for fairness, ethics and the rule of law, obliging them to act in the best interest of all of the people of NSW, not just their favoured electorates.

The only saving grace for our former premier is that she actually resigned prior to the investigation of her involvement in wrongdoing – something the coal-and-power-hugging Morrison government doesn’t even know how to spell. Luckily the worldwide reign of King Coal is coming to its end, hopefully taking the associated corruption with it.
