O’Farell has resigned
BARRY O’Farrell has resigned as NSW Premier following his appearance at the Independent Commission against Corruption yesterday.
Mr O’Farrell denied receiving a $3000 bottle of wine from Australian Water Holdings boss Nick Di Girolamo yesterday but resigned today after it was revealed that he sent Mr Di Girolamo a card thanking him for the gift.
Something there for the ALP to think about. A Liberal political Premier resigns over a mistake he made, inadvertantly or not, while the ALP have had people like Thomson refusing to admit his crimes with Gillard backing him as a good local member. Hundreds of thousands stolen from his union members and through it all, he refused to resign and no one forced him to.
O’Farrell meets the high standards of the Liberal movement while the ALP sets low standards and fail to even meet them.
