The ghost of Gladys and the Lefty Liberal’s control of NSW may be gradually going.
Jim Betts has been sent on his way - but maybe something weirder is taking his place.
Ex-commy pommy Jim Betts somehow became the darling of the NSW Liberals with a meteoric rise in the public service.
Gladys made him the highest ranked bureaucrat in NSW even though he appeared to spend most of his day piss-farting around with diversity social issues.
Today, conservative Premier Dominic Perrottet got rid of him.
Strangely though he is replaced by Michael Coutts-Trotter .. Tanya Plibersek’s husband.
Michael has his own ‘interesting story’.
He served two years and nine months of a 9 year jail term for drug dealing when a young man.
He couldn’t get a job as a teacher or policeman – but he can run the public service!
Once again, what happens in NSW Politics continues to puzzle.
