NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has told residents of Sydney to forget about the smoke permeating through the city and instead lay back and think about the pending opening of the long awaited light rail.
“The people of Sydney need to stop dwelling on the negatives of the city and look at the positives,” said Premier Berejiklian. “We have wonderful beaches, casinos, RSL’s, stamp duty revenue and now a new light rail that might open next week.”
“What’s Victoria got? Trams and only one casino, pfft.”
When asked what she would say to those who are suffering due to the ongoing smoke in the city the Premier said: “If you are struggling to get out and about, why not go somewhere that’s air conditioned, like the Casino or an RSL.”
“You can stay in any pokies room in NSW as long as you want, well as long as you keep gambling. Who knows you might even win some money. Talk about every smoke cloud having a silver or in this case gold coin lining.”
“Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to shoot a few Koalas, those lazy buggers are just asking for it.”
