Miss Eagle is well pleased with the NSW election result....for one simple reason. The Liberals don't hold the reins and resources of government in the premier state with which to undergird a Federal election campaign.
Miss Eagle won't congratulate Morrie Iemma. Debenham's campaign - if you can give it that name - is lamentable and uncommentable.
Miss Eagle suffered the insult that is City Rail in the last years of the 20th century - and things, clearly, have become worse. In fact, have gone from worse to awful.
She prays for the sake of the commuters of Sydney that the premier of Italian descent can emulate the leadership of another Italian in one area only - managing the trains as well as Mussolini.
