By comparison Liberal candidate Russell Fitzpatrick has attracted a mere 28.67 per cent of first preferences.

No surprise though was it. Some of the past opportunists left leaving some bad tastes around the place.

TT or PC whoever you are, it seems to me you have a poor understanding, interpretation of what some comments actually mean, or their intentions might be. I don't have a problem with the results.

The state election results might be a very good thing for NSW.

The states collected tax bucket of peoples money can only do so much, can't it. The past attitude of public asset sales didn't help with the cost of living either. In fact it assisted with cost of living increases, didn't it? Many of those who were employed to manage the peoples business were only in it for a fee ride.


NOTE: Comments were TRIALED - in the end it failed as humans will be humans and it turned into a pile of merde; only contributed to by just a handful who did little to add to the conversation of the issue at hand. Anyone who would like to contribute an opinion are encouraged to send in a Letter to the Editor where it might be considered for publication
