And again. The last week has seen the green light given to - what else? - another casino, and the game council exposed as a farce of self interest and lies.

Go NSW!

Yesterday came the news of a Government Minister being sacked for what most would deem as corrupt practices.

The Minister involved is not one of those currently being dragged up before the Independent Commission Against Corruption, he has managed to avoid this so far.

The Minister involved is one of Barry O’Farrells front bench whom O’Farrell promised would be scandal free during his campaign

As I said in a post the other day, this is what is deemed a scandal free Ministry from a Coalition government.

For starters there is the publicly masturbating Arts Minister George Souris, then there’s Environment Minister Robyn Parker who thinks logging is good for Koala’s, that makes her pretty special in my books. Health Minister Jillian Skinner whose office is evacuated at the threat of a few nurses delivering her a cake. Education Minister Adrian Piccoli a man who publicly signs a pledge to maintain TAFE funding in his campaign and then slashes TAFE services as part of the Coalitions $1.8 Billion Education cuts which cost 800 TAFE workers their job, Piccoli is also famous for leaving disabled children stranded by the side of the road when he changed their transport. Emergency Services Minister Michael Gallacher, whom I believe is the first Minister in Australia to ever have his Party actually booed out of Parliament by a gallery full of police, quite an achievement indeed . Gallacher also made the decision to close Fire Stations around the state during a heat wave and spate of bushfires, forcing communities to rely on volunteer services and fire services from other area’s which were left unprotected. The Attorney General Greg Smith who insults the victims of paedophiles and supports priests charged with sexually assaulting multiple young children, then puts forward legislation, now passed, so that most victims of these paedophile priests will never be compensated. Minister For Community services Pru Goward who has overseen what many have described as a public housing crisis and has brought about such chaos in the Department Of Community Services that child welfare is at arguably its lowest point ever and there has been talk of Federal intervention being required. Not to mention the Treasurer Mike Baird who has a 100% success rate for delivering budget deficits after inheriting a surplus, and famous for losing a Billion dollars, quite the financial conservative.

No scandals there Barry….. much.

Interesting to see the NSW Business Chamber throwing its weight behind the second airport issue in a positive way.

Quote

Mr Brown says planning has to start soon "while there is conjecture around when Sydney airport becomes capacity constrained there are long lead times in developing an airport".

A Federal Government report last year warned "2027 is a time where people start to be turned away from Sydney airport and we have an imperative here to start thinking about where the next Sydney airport might be".

West of the Blue Mountains, out on the plains, far away from any cities or large towns and with a ban on any housing development other than that needed by the airport.

Fast rail connection to Sydney as well as feeder air services to there and other cities.

Anywhere there could be, say, a 90 minute train ride to Sydney, could work.

If we have fast rail from Sydney to the airport, that could be anywhere within 400-500 km of Sydney. :lol:

That's a big 'if'. I was thinking of places lie Gatwick and Narita where there is a decent train trip to town, but this seems to work well enough.

But wait, there's more....

Two ministers go in two weeks in NSW.

One was incompetent and the other one, wait for it, left for a better job than working in the O'Farrell government.

Quote

A second New South Wales Cabinet reshuffle in a month has prompted renewed calls to dump Family and Community Services Minister Pru Goward.

Sports Minister Graham Annesley announced his resignation from State Parliament yesterday to become chief executive of the Gold Coast Titans in Queensland.




And of course there's Prue and her failure to tell the truth...

Now Prue has been caught trying to alter the public record of what she said.

I had been about to praise the NSW govt for the announcements of work in the Hunter area today, but then....

Dirty water dealings bubble up from ICAC for O'Farrell

Quote

AWH is currently headed by lawyer and businessman Nicholas Di Girolamo, a former chairman of the Wests Tigers rugby league club and the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

He is also a prominent fund raiser for the Liberal Party. In July last year the O'Farrell Government appointed him to the board of the State Water Corporation, which manages rural dams and water assets.

We see that the state Libs in NSW have suffered a 27 percent reversal in Miranda.


Wow.

Big Barry really doesn't want to do anything about alcohol-fuelled violence.

Quote

NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has spent the past 16 months sitting on a Cabinet-approved plan to curb alcohol-fuelled violence, despite swelling public pressure for a crackdown.

Looks like the wheels are starting to fall off yet another NSW gumment. After months of luxuriating in the ICAC misfortunes of the ALP, now three Liberal members are under investigation by that same body. At the same time the Libs are continuing the grand state tradition of screwing around with the second airport decision, despite the number of jobs that would come with the project. And not the Nats are looking to spoil at least one person' selection day with a decision to run one sitting member against a Lib, this being in the seat of Goulbourn.

Now the wheel seems to have turned full circle. Three state LNP MPs are under investigation by ICAC for illegal donation-taking; the Rum Corps state also seems to be likely to claim Arthur Sinodinos as one of its own, with him a standing aside from a prominent federal role after it emerged he was indeed involved in the web of Eddie Obeid's dealings.

In the meantime the EPA and FACS agencies remain a running joke.

What does one say? Roozendaal exposed for the slimey operator he is; a Police Minister out; more to come. NSW is the action state!

Given today's proceedings at ICAC, it's hard to see how anyone could, think that the recent change of government in NSW has changed anything at all.

Now five LNP members have stood aside over investigations into electoral funding.

Read it here.

Quote

Two more New South Wales Government MPs have stood aside from the parliamentary Liberal Party after explosive revelations at the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) hearing into campaign funding.

Premier Mike Baird has accepted the decision of Newcastle MP Tim Owen and Government Whip and Member for Charlestown Andrew Cornwell to move to the crossbenches while the inquiry continues.


Cornwall is my local member. Imagine how impressed I am.

Further to the LNP funding scandal, now we find out that Lib party president Brian Loughnane, husband of PM secretary Peta Credlin, has been named as knowing about the funding irregularities.
