    Glad but also sad I left Tasmania, not as good as it looks. Anywhere is only as good as the people one shares it with. Most Tasmanians are great, even the new Tasmanians (mainlanders), but some Tasmanians can be very parochial and defensive of their ways, even if they’re corrupt.

    Tasmania, and the rest of Australia, was built on very corrupt govts (think of rum corps NSW, the rather high miners’ taxes in 1850s Vic, the Kelly gang saga, Qld during Bjelke-Petersen, WA Inc, the myth of Terra Nullius, Robo-debt, list goes on), so it’s hardly surprising there’s little will to out themselves and admit to more wrongs.

    Australia is a flawed gem, and no longer the land of a fair go for all. And then there’s the whole thing about Chinese influence over our govts! One really wonders what’s become of us and what will become of us the way we’re going. I’m seriously considering other countries to move to, again, they seem little worse than us these days. So many Australians now move to Asia for a better life, and many US citizens move out of the US to what Trump would call bad lands, like Mexico! Go figure!

    With what has happened to an innocent lady, I will never set a foot on Tasmanian ground. I am waiting for the news that Sue had been set free. best wishes go out to Sue and all her family and friends.

    I note in his first speech as Premier, Gutwein says he will govern for all and with compassion; SNF is his first test. Meet with the AG and Governor and get her out pending her appeal. Too much to hope for I suspect.

  4. Keith says:

    Over the last two days I have made similar postings in the comments section of the Mercury’s articles on the Premier’s resignation.
    Strangely, neither post has been published.

    I totally agree Keith – his legacy of cronyism and corruption might change – one can be hopeful!!! Maybe a Royal Commission will move forward but what happened to Sue occurred on his watch and he cannot run from that. He lacks integrity, honesty and justice and Tasmania will be better off with him gone. Maybe Sue might receive her freedom now however the justice system is still full of the old boys who will continue to cover up.

  6. Keith says:

    Great to hear the news of the Premier’s resignation. Let’s hope this frees up his successor or the Attorney General to free SNF immediately on his departure.
    Let’s further hope that his successor is not a member of the Tasmanian legal fraternity boys club and calls for a royal commission into her wrongful conviction.
