‘That disease has spread’: Luke Foley slams ‘entitled’ government
The latest poll on the potential election results puts Labor and the Coalition in a neck and neck race.
And it’s been a dreadful week for NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, with a report in The Australian suggesting it was Ms Berejiklian who encouraged NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet to run against fellow minister Ray Williams for the seat of Castle Hill.
Speaking with Steve Price, NSW Labor Leader Luke Foley questions if government have learnt nothing.
“It seems like the Liberals have learnt nothing, Steve, from what happened in Canberra.
“The shenanigans where an elected Prime Minister was taken out by his own Liberal colleagues… That disease has spread to Macquarie Street, Sydney.”
“The sense of entitlement where the Treasurer says, ‘Look I don’t like commuting so I’ll take my colleague’s job’…
“I mean, tell that to the millions of people in the state who are battling through congestion on our roads or jammed in like sardines on trains every day of the week.
“They don’t get the opportunity to steal their colleague’s jobs to avoid a commute.
“It really tells you that eight years into the life of this government, that they’re consumed with self-interest rather than serving the public interest.”
