Reba Meagher’s tabloid return

Former NSW Health Minister Reba Meagher has re-emerged after flouncing out of the NSW Labor Government, writes Alex Mithcell.

Former NSW Health Minister Reba Meagher has given an “exclusive” interview to the Daily Telegraph, her first since flouncing out of the Labor Government in September, causing a by-election in the south-west Sydney seat of Cabramatta.

More “exclusives” can be expected in the coming weeks and months. Her new partner is former Channel Nine state political reporter Adam Walters and he has just been hired by the Telegraph.

    How long will it take Reba Meager to realise that she is destined for obscurity?

    If Reba’s feeling sufficiently bilious she might spare a thought for Gillian Sneddon. Any information Ms Meagher has to offer insight into what Rees as Milton Orkopoulos’ right hand man did or could know would promote democracy through the rooves of many parliaments. Adam could surely shed some light on how closely staff work with their Ministers. That Rees didn’t get a whiff of such debauchery indicates he’s either deaf, dumb or blind or just plain stupid.

    This story made all that money look real bad, and made me feel real good, being a very poor activist type who rumour suggested was of interest to poach from The Wilderness Society to the ALP after their famous March 95 election. Alot of water under the bridge since then and no jobbies for this lad in the ALP tribe. Too independently minded.

    Even Franky Sartor has been getting frisky over that Botany Bay carpark on NSW Stateline. Good on yer Frank, we do redemption in truck loads champ. Go green Frank!

    The treachery of ego-driven ex-MPs is literally 10-fold on what was seen among previous generations of parliamentarians.

    Alex is spot on about Reba…talk about sell out! The Labor Party is well rid of her!
