John Greenham, Ewingsdale

I bet those pedants at ICAC now regret getting rid of Gladys. The drongos who took over have presided over an entirely unnecessary pandemic explosion (which has largely wrecked Christmas) despite all the warning signs flashing red.

NSW should take a leaf out of Qld’s book and make Kerry Chant the Governor so she can (metaphorically) veto political idiocy on health-related matters.


Support The Echo

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. Gladys would do what? She was before the icac because of a lack of integrity and never acknowledged she did have bad judgement or failed to report possible corrupt activities as is required. Remember ruby princess and her failure to lock down the eastern suburbs in July but put in unfair restrictions on southwestern Sydney whilst letting other areas party. This whole lot including gladys( who was on the payroll doing nothing for 3 months before she resigned) never take responsibility for their decisions, an important concept in the westminister system of government.
