One in every of Australia’s most senior feminine Labor MPs says she feels sorry for Gladys Berejiklian, regardless of being on the opposite aspect of the political aisle.
Federal Deputy Opposition Chief Tanya Plibersek refused to touch upon whether or not the NSW premier ought to resign when requested concerning the bombshell revelation this week that she had a detailed, private relationship with disgraced minister Daryl Maguire.
“I really feel truly, as a human being, very personally sorry for the premier,” she instructed the ABC’s Insiders program.
“It’s arduous to kind an preserve relationships in our line of labor.”
However Ms Plibersek stated there was by no means any excuse “for corrupt behaviour or turning a blind eye to deprave behaviour”.
“Any form of impropriety ought to be correctly investigated by ICAC and whether it is referred to the police, by the police or the courts,” she stated.
“It doesn‘t matter who the individual is, it doesn’t matter their gender, it doesn’t matter if we just like the individual or really feel sorry for them.”
