Gladys Berejiklian is no longer fit to lead the state of NSW. Residents of NSW have had enough of the incompetence of the Berejiklian Government and the total destruction of NSW businesses and people.

Lockdowns have caused financial destruction of NSW businesses Lockdowns have caused devastating losses to NSW residents Lockdowns have caused an escalation in mental health issues and suicide Lockdowns have put fear into the people of NSW Mandatory testing is not a democracy but a violation of basic human rights Health orders involving police, mounted police, police helicopter, highway patrol and riot squad are heavy handed and unfair especially for people in the Western suburbs of Sydney

The people of NSW are tired of having heavy handed restrictions put upon them with decisions made according to "health advice". We have never been told what the health advice is or shown. Even the NSW treasurer was against the latest round of lockdowns Politicians are paid a wage regardless of whether they work or not, so lockdowns bear no effect to them Premier, you have lost the support of the NSW people and you need to resign.

Utter rubbish.

The Premier of NSW is acting on the advice of her chief health officer. Sign this ridiculous nonsense and be assured it will mean nothing. If you live in NSW, your opportunity to cast your views of the NSW governments actions will be at the next poll on 25/3/2023.

Now bring on the Dan petition and it will die in the asre as well.

Disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire has been heard lobbying his former partner, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, regarding a deal he thought could make him $1.5 million.

The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) is looking into whether the former Wagga Wagga MP used his position for financial gain.

Mr Maguire initially told the Commission he limited how much he told Ms Berejiklian about a deal he was working on involving land in Western Sydney, owned by Louise Waterhouse's Smart West, because he thought it would create a conflict of interest and place her in a difficult position.

Mr Maguire and Ms Berejiklian were, at the time, in a relationship.

During this morning's hearing, Mr Maguire was quizzed on the extent of the information he shared with Ms Berejiklian.

Honestly she's done some other stuff in the past few years that already theoretically should have removed her from parliment, let alone this.

I'm sure she is Teflon Coated.

There should be questions on why she didn't lock down quick enough when this outbreak started and waited for it to spread.

Yes, let's just chuck out a Premier or P.M. anytime anybody doesn't like him or her and gets a few signatures. Sure fire way to turn our well functioning democracy into a non-stop poo-parade.

She got very terse when asked about that at the press conference today - "refer to my previous statement, not here to talk about that".

More and more stuff coming out about her relationship with Maguire all the time: Certainly has the potential to get her sacked, after all O'Farrell lost the job over a bottle of wine and this is much more serious.

Lockdowns have caused the financial destruction of NSW businesses. Lockdowns. Lockdowns. Lockdowns.

The source of those statements has heard of Victoria right?

Is NSW even in lockdown? I took a call the early last week from our down town Sydney CBD office, wanting me to send something to the office. I couldn't believe it, I questioned whether they meant their home, 'No, we're all still in the office.'

No wonder NSW is smeg, when SA had it's little lockdown I was at home, the only people at the office were security, and I think they're a requirement of the building owner.

Lockdowns can prevent the spread of the virus sure but at what cost?

Victorian businesses have gone under just take a look at the CBD and the number of closed businesses now.

Sadly NSW did not react fast enough and people have suffered from the virus the question is will NSW be out of lockdown by Xmas?  

What is certain borders with NSW from QLD to VIC and SA will stay closed for many months yet.

CBD business in Melbourne have been smashed by the work-from-home orders and the disappearance of international students. None of that is changing anytime soon even when out of lockdown. Even without lockdowns the CBD was going to get wrecked by COVID.

There’s no way I am taking a look at Melbourne CBD anytime soon, not until Victoria gets its act together too.

I doubt that NSW was ever the ‘gold standard’ in Covid containment, but it was it must certainly be SA that had that title now.

Two short lockdowns, one of which wasn’t even necessary, once accurate information was acquired, the second of which went early which meant only a week.

Victorians (specifically Melbournians) just can’t get it right, and NSW is just participating in a smeg show - today is an embarrassment for them.

There are three times as many people in Melbourne than your sleepy little backwater state and there is far more cross border trade and vectors for transmission between Sydney and Melbourne than what there are into Adelaide. Not really comparable.

You guys have also gotten lucky through this: I know people who did border dashes into SA during times of border closures and were never stopped by SA police or even saw any police enforcement or checks. So much for SA Gold Standard. If Melbourne had an outbreak like Sydney has now any one of these people could have brought COVID into SA.

Anyone claiming to be Gold Standard really just got lucky.

Lockdown 4 in Melbourne was triggered by a person who contracted COVID-19 whilst in hotel quarantine in South Australia.

However keep that ‘Gold Standard’ title.

And Adelaide’s outbreak was a case cleared by NSW Health - what’s your point?

I agree with the statements further above that hodgepodge petitions are not the way to eject a government.

However, formalising an orderly process for recall elections would be a significant upgrade for Australian democracy at all three levels. Accountability should be ongoing, and the growing norm that winning an election makes the PM/Premier a dictator for the next 3/4 years must be crushed.

There’s a few ways this could go based on other precedents:
- UK, where recall petitions are opened when a MP commits certain acts such as being convicted of expenses fraud or a crime where the maximum sentence is custodial.
- USA, where a bunch of states allow citizen-initiated recall petitions with a subsequent recall election held if the petition reaches a specified threshold.
- Australia, where 2011 reforms to the Corporations Act 2001 give shareholders the right to trigger a board spill by voting against the remuneration report.

The US system seems to be one that is used quite responsibly by the public, as 19 states have recall procedures but only four petitions have ever managed to progress to the next stage of holding a recall election for the state governor. In California alone there have been well over 60 attempts to instigate a recall of the Governor with only two resulting in recall elections, so it appears even their 12% threshold is sufficient to prevent mischievous use of it.

NSW was never the gold standard, they just got lucky in 2020, in 2021 that luck has run out.

Similarly, Victoria has never been as bad as some of its detractors would suggest. The biggest COVID disaster in Victoria was when it got into the federally run aged care sector. The Minister (Colbeck) still hasn't been held accountable for that.

As for Gladys, I'm no fan, but if these petition hawkers just want her out because they can't cope with a lockdown, somebody needs to get them their bottle, burp them and set them down for the night.

On the other hand, if they want her out because she put politics ahead of public health and delayed a lockdown, then that is another matter all together.

At any rate, elections are where we decide who runs our governments, that's where this stuff needs to be sorted.
