The Wonderful World of NSW politics

Glad’s ascent to the premiership prompted an outbreak of sneering from Luke Foley inferring that it was the result of a dirty factional deal. This was of course an affront to the proud heritage of Eddie Obeid and Joe Tripodi the peerless Labor pioneers who developed Premier power broking into an artform.

No go zone

In view of his Iranian heritage it looks like Sam Dastyari’s best future prospect of travelling to the US is through becoming an asylum seeker on Manus Island.

Climate Change news

Inside sources believe that Trump’s contingency plan to protect the US from the effects of climate change is to build a roof over the country once he’s finished the wall.

Hillary’s future plans

Democratic strategists foresee a good chance for Hillary to win the Presidency in 2024 because by that time the US will clearly understand the benefits of electing a candidate who is well-prepared.

The ban on Syriansetc travelling to the US means not only that the Syrian Embassy in Washington is unlikely to re-open soon but also precludes the possibility if it being taken over by Islamic State.
