Katy moving on?

By johnboy - 12 December 2013 22

CityNews is running gossip on possible plans for Chief Minister Gallagher to ride into the sunset before the next election:

A CREDIBLE political snout says the ALP’s biggest electoral asset, Chief Minister Katy Gallagher, will hand over the big chair to deputy Andrew Barr some time during the life of the present Assembly, to spend more time with her family.

It’s been no secret that there was a succession agreement, but they don’t always go to plan and the timing in particular can be in the eye of the beholder.

Also in the same article they have pop at the CT’s Chris Knaus’ recent run of Walkley-bait.

What’s Your opinion?

Gotta love it when someone harps on about paying lawyers, apparently oblivious to the facts Solicitors-General are public servants and on the public pay roll anyway.

She should resign forthwith. She has just poured money that should have been spent on health and education down the drain in the form of,
a/ paying lawyers to write legislation that was inoperative
and
b/ paying lawyers fo advice that proved wrong
and
c/ paying lawyers to appear in the High Court to achieve failure.

How does this help Canberra’s ratepayers?

Resign!

As in most politicians telling us they’re going to spend “more time with their family” have adult (or none at all) children.

that’s a bit pre-judicial in terms of a definition of ‘family’ there, jb; and a bit gossipy, old chap. ease up now. pip pip.

With the entrenched GreensLabor vote in the ACT sadly the chief minister role is essentially reduced to a baton passing exercise between one useless Labor henchman (or woman) and the next.

Or are men. Which is probably what lots are thinking.

I’m sure there’s plenty of fathers of young kids with high level political careers. No one would take it for granted that they quit for their family.

More so than most she does actually have family which needs her.

Err… what do you mean by “More so than most?”.

If she leaves the Assembly, then her seat would be taken by a Green. That would be the final evidence of the permanent Labor /Greens alliance.

That is highly unlikely.

If this does come to pass, and if the local Liberals don’t go broke and/or consume themselves with factional fights, we could actually have a serious competition at the next election – I think that would be a healthy outcome for democracy in this little town.

People seem to have tolerance for Katy but anyone actually like Barr? He appears to be arrogant at all media releases

…to spend more time with her family.

What’s the scandal Johnboy?
