There is no "smoking gun" currently here at present, Ms Berejiklian so far has done nothing wrong technically, her former boyfriend is due to give evidence at the ICAC hearing both on Wednesday and Thursday, if it comes across then that she has done special deals for him, her career is finished! but as of now, she is still hanging on by the skin of her teeth.

She would have been aware of the issues he was involved in that is really the problem as I see it.  How much did she know?  Her squeeze was involved in the airport land for western sydney too.

I'd like to know if Maguire is a Licensed Real Estate Agent.  If he brokered real estate transactions for a commission, then it is an offence if he is not licensed to do so.  Gladys would no doubt have been aware of that.

Is it any wonder transport planning is stuffed in this country, with corrupt pollies on the take:

Gladys isn't the first woman to be duped by a partner and won't be the last.

Agreed. There has been much sympathy for GB.One of the partners primary sources of revenue according to ICAC, was the provision of visas for sale, not a responsibility of the state government but the feds.
Interesting times.

Interesting how many blokes I have heard down here (where people have had very little knowledge or interest in NSW politics until now) focusing on GB's looks. McGuire is no oil painting and I reckon he was punching above his weight. Just sayin!

Sure he was. Gladys is quite a fetching lass, she certainly doesn't carry too many extra kilos, which is sadly so common in this Australia of convenience eating, with this ridiculous choice of cuisines, both interesting and horrid. Look at her counterpart over the northern border!  But this is beside the point, few people would comment on Mr. Andrews' looks when conversing about his performance as Premier, why do it for Gladys?

Private meetings between the Premier and a property developer....  oopsy

In the interests of equity.

Dan Andrews does look like the missus does his haircut in the kitchen. Could do with a change of wardrobe.
The silver blaze starting to show is stately.

You're not allowed to have a haircut in Victoria at the moment so wouldn't surprise me if she did!

I'm not going anywhere at the moment so it doesn't bother me!

It's perfectly legal to have a haircut; if it isn't I'm in trouble because I bought a clipper and do my own.   it's just not legal for hairdressers to be open.

Geez I'm in trouble then, just got a haircut from the local barber this Tuesday just gone!

Could not agree with you more. McGuire should thank his lucky stars that he had the love of a woman such as Gladys. The Coalition down here could do with someone as competent as her.

God why do people obsess about females looks?

My wife has been cutting my hair for 40 years and I've saved a heap of money in the process.  With my receding hairline, there's not much more left to cut.

McGuire gave some pretty damning evidence at the ICAC hearings yesterday and today. "Sure I took paper bags full of cash, doesn't everyone in politics?". He should have stuck to the usual "I don't recall" but instead gave the actual truth... stupid fool.

Poor Gladys looks like a real fool now. She might not have been directly involved with his corruption but she sure has a penchant for those bad boys who love their brown paper bags...

Gladys is in the position that thousands of women have been in, i.e. a partner concealing something. It could an extra-marital affair, gambling, or secret money.
Whilst I want my politicians to be honest, I don't expect them to be infallible. If I were having it off with the NSW premier, and receiving bent money at the same time, I'd take great care to hide the extent and sources of it from her. We have evidence per a phone transcript of one instance in which she likes the fact that he's made a few grand, but we have no evidence of any alarm bell that she should have noticed.
She trusted the wrong bloke, and history is littered with countless examples of others who have done the same.

How do you explain her meeting with developers with Daryl and he saying the builders were just fans of her?

Yeah I don't buy it, Valvegear. The Premier knew all about her boyfriend's crooked dealings - that's been at the core of these ICAC hearings.

Plenty of people on Twitter jumping to her defence with this hackneyed line too - including those who have been trotting out the old "you can't help who you fall in love with" rubbish.

She's in a very high position of extreme responsibility - woman or man, you have to make extremely careful judgements about who you decide to associate with, especially if you're having an intimate relationship with them. Frankly giving Gladys a pass on this one if its turned out she's aided and abetted his crooked dealings is nothing short of pathetic and sexist.

It's like saying it's okay for women to dissolve into silly little girls and make bad decisions when they fall in love because that's just how they are. Nup - throw the book at her.

Not buying it either.
Wasn’t he punted back on 2018? Due to things looking dodgy. Yet after she continued the relationship. And said nothing. There lies the issue for me.
Gladys is obviously an intelligent person, convinced she must have been aware.
However, I do have sympathy for a person who’s personal life is publicly exposed in such a fashion.

The NSW Premier's office has admitted to shredding documents covering $250 million of council grants made in the lead up to the 2019 election

"And how did you dispose of those working advice notes?" asked Labor MP John Graham.

"It's likely they would have been shredded," she replied.

The Premier's former chief of staff, Sarah Cruickshank, was asked whether it was routine practice in the Premier's office to destroy documents related to the spending of millions of dollars in public money.

"No, I would say it's not," she replied.
