John Barilaro is ‘begging’ Gladys Berejiklian to take a break
NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro has opened up about his own mental health needs and urged the Premier Gladys Berejiklian to take a break herself.
Mr Barilaro told Jim Wilson he’s “begging” the Premier to consider her own mental health after a year filled with bushfires, a pandemic and political aspersions.
“I said to her ‘my greatest worry isn’t actually about me … it’s actually you, boss.’
“I have urged her to have a break.
“Look, if she takes official leave of course I’ll be acting Premier, and I think that scares her.
“Probably that’s why she’s not going anywhere,” laughed Mr Barilaro.
