Why is Sydney awesome?
Because the next time I’m in strife, I might be rescued by ninjas.
Why does Sydney suck?
A TV news station has taken it upon itself to out a senior politician who had broken no parliamentary codes of conduct in his private pursuits.
NSW Premier Kristina Keneally says she has accepted Transport Minister David Campbell’s resignation, tendered over claims he used a government car to visit a gay sex club in Sydney.
Ms Keneally accepted Mr Campbell’s resignation, saying he had carried out his ministerial duties with dedication and success.
“I accepted his resignation on compassionate grounds as he clearly wants time to work through this difficult period with his family,” Ms Keneally said in a statement late on Thursday night.
“I thank him for his tireless work and for fulfilling his ministerial duties with dedication.”I appeal to the community to show understanding towards David and his family at this time.”
The TV producers justify the outing as “in the public interest” because he has presented himself to the electorate as a “happily married family man” and thus has been “lying”.
Newsflash Channel to 7 journos – it is actually possible to be happily married and a dedicated parent yet still enjoy same-sex liaisons – you have no idea how much his wife in particular already knew, and it’s none of your business anyway.
