State Premier, Kristina Keneally, electioneering in Newcastle today, noted for her indefatigable spirit, this time, in a meeting near the law courts. Later, secret womens' business includes the local MP for the Hunter: Jodi McKay.
Ms Keneally was born, raised and educated in the USA, married an Australian and moved here and has a youngish family.
Democracy is operative but a 'revolution' is mooted in the State election on March 26. Once it was ok to give the smaller political parties a vote as a 'poke' but now that unheard of change is mooted, things are different.
Tokens and largess are unnecessary. Sound innovative government is what counts. And a competent interesting premier in Sydney is a bonus.
Down with the harping uninspired nagging we hear from the leader of the opposition in Canberra who mightly deflates all the drive towards informed, hopeful, even expensive, change.
