Voters across New South Wales are today expressing frustration about having details of Gladys Berejiklian’s love life splashed all over the media.
The NSW Premier was today giving evidence to a corruption inquiry about her former boyfriend and Liberal MP Daryl Maguire.
“Honestly, I really don’t care that much about the corruption claims,” says Sydney man Jake Willow. “I just wish I didn’t have to hear about who was bonking Gladys.”
Some commentators say Ms Berejiklian will be forced to resign after the Independent Commission Against Corruption replayed her private phone calls with Mr Maguire.
“I understand the inquiry needs to happen, but please can it happen behind closed doors,” says mother of two Jane Longworth.
“I love Gladys, but I’d feel more comfortable continuing to perceive her as someone who is asexual.”
Ms Berejiklian is not accused of any misconduct in the inquiry but is being probed about Mr Maguire’s activities.
“Spare me the details,” says Jake Willow. “It’s just way too disturbing.”
Mr Maguire is expected to front the inquiry later this week.
