It's Time To Go Kristina Keneally. However...
Let me get one thing clear.
I am no great supporter of either the Labor, coalition or Green parties.
In fact I've voted for all three, plus independents over the years.
However enough is enough.
Premier Kristina Keneally seems like a nice enough woman, but NSW is in a complete mess, and it's time for this rotten government to go.
I believe Labor will be swept from office in a landslide at tomorrow's election after 16 years of lies, corruption and neglect of basic services like transport and hospitals.
It's incredible to think a city like Sydney has a road system close to complete gridlock, a public transport system that can hardly cope, a hospital system that is falling apart, and a host of other problems.
Sure it's not easy running a state, but I sense the public is sick and tired of empty promises and a team of ministers that can't talk to us in a straightforward manner or answer questions honestly.
Whether Barry O'Farrell is up to the job remains to be seen, but he can't be any worse than the mob running the place at the moment.
It's obvious Barry knows he's going to be the next Premier, and I hope he gets onto the job of fixing up this state from day one.
Part of his victory will be because voters want to punish Labor, but the new Premier has a big job ahead, and a lot of us are relying on him to start getting things done.
Is Barry O'Farrell the right person for the job?
