The photo above of the newly appointed NSW Premier is old, and he actually has six children, hence “the inseminator”, inspired by this fellow, who is about as funny as the Woke can get:

After Gladys Berejiklian resigned Perrottet was the hot favourite to take over, but then drifted to only warm favourite after the ‘Centre Right’ faction (8 MPs) of the NSW Liberals decided to have a hissy fit about Perrottet’s ‘Right’ faction primarying its candidates in local council races and dropped support for him, but in the end the Party, and most of its ‘Moderate’ (Left) faction, decided to avoid an entirely open race for the leadership and essentially came to a ‘consensus’ decision on Perrottet, who won 39-5, against recalcitrant Planning Minister Rob Stokes (‘Moderate’), who wouldn’t play ball. Lots of fascinating drama there.
Relative to Victoria the Right in Sydney politics – in both the Liberal and Labor parties – does seem considerably stronger on the whole, and it even extends to some cultural issues, like say the Anglican archdiocese of Sydney remains one of the last holdouts in the country against allowing the absurd spectacle of vagina-havers pretending to be priests. Federal Labor has traditionally been dominated by the NSW Right faction, and in the later stages of the Cold War were the main reason federal Labor were more hawkish and pro-American than the Liberals.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the Covid madness plays out in NSW relative to Victoria now, as Perrottet ostensibly doesn’t want a permanent division of society, and the original plan for vaccine passports there was that ‘the unvaccinated’ would only be excluded from venues until December 1, while Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has said that the police will essentially not actively enforce the system – it will be up to the venues to do it, and the police will only turn up if someone makes a scene about being refused entry – , and then you’ve got things like this:
Steph Cooke, the Government MP for Cootamundra, has just announced that businesses in her electorate do not need fully vaccinated staff to reopen next Monday.
Assuming this applies across NSW and for customers as well.
Vaccine Passports look dead and buried, thankfully.

That applies to work rights for the ‘the unvaccinated’, which are being completely stripped away in Victoria, and you might find some exchange of population between the two states now, the Covid loons, freaks, and maniacs in NSW flee to Victoria so they can feel safe, and the diehard anti-gene therapy people in Victoria will head north to feel free. Assuming NSW does turn into the Florida-lite of the country, which seems optimistic.
