Neither the Premier of NSW nor the Opposition Leader could find time to attend the Afghanistan welcome home parade

While Sydney welcomed home its Afghanistan veterans yesterday, Premier Mike Baird was attending to the dogs at the Camden Show.  Opposition Leader Luke Foley couldn't find the time to say thank you to the troops either.

The Welcome Home parade had been scheduled since last November.   Baird sent a Parliamentary Secretary, not even a Minister and Foley sent an upper house MP noted for his anti-war sentiments.

Here are a few more videos from the Sydney parade including the AFP contingent.
