Changeover at the top?

By johnboy - 28 July 2010 12

My sources all say there’s not much to it.

But it’s worth noting that Jessica Wright (now on the SMH) has been speculating that the Minister Not Responsible, Katy Gallagher, is about to tap the Brave and Chiefly Stanhope on the shoulder.

Internal party speculation is rife that Chief Minister Jon Stanhope is preparing to stand down to make way for deputy Katy Gallagher, who would be elected unopposed by caucus. Party sources say there is a strong push for generational change from Mr Stanhope – the nation’s longest-serving current Labor leader – to Ms Gallagher. This would avoid damaging leadership speculation of the kind that dogged federal and NSW Labor recently.

An announcement on Mr Stanhope’s future is expected to be made in late September, after he returns from leave.

Waxing philosophical Mr Stanhope says he plans to lead Labor to the 2012 election.

What’s Your opinion?

Stanhope would be welcomed by the ANU or any other big developer in town…a man with his can do attitude coupled with his extensive experience in government, he would be the perfect consultant.

Suggestion in today’s Crikey that Stanhope and McMullan are vying to become the next Administrator of Norfolk Island …

Why not Mururoa Atoll?

Can we offer to throw Gallagher in too, to make a 3 administrator deal?

Katy does have the accent and the drawl for it. Maybe a ranga rinse through the bottle blonde and Katy’ll be all set for the challenge.

No it will drag out longer and will be more like Katy doing an Abbott on Turnbull, or possibly a Turnbull on Nelson.
