THE ‘Court of Public Opinion’ … where does it come from? From Polls conducted by RESOLVE. And influence from Sydney Morning Herald articles like this perhaps based on ‘Resolve’s’ Polls … “Berejiklian’s halo has not slipped, survey shows”
WHO are Resolve?
Resolve Research, a company with strong links to the LIBERAL PARTY; founded by Mr Reed, a director of CT Group formerly Crosby Textor
Further described as a political strategy firm, a lobbying firm, providing political consultancy. And social research, corporate strategy and political polling services (for the Liberal Party) FFS!
Where was the poll conducted?
Was it in her electorate alone?
Was it conducted with Liberal Party members?
What is the size of the sample?
Will we ever know?
‘Much of the court of public opinion thinks she simply has bad taste in boyfriends, rather than being corrupt.’
Who buys this?
Gladys had a five year affair with Maguire … at least. She would have been in her mid 40s when this began … not a naïve young woman …
Following her high school education she spent several years studying at the campuses of the University of Sydney and NSW … well known for sex scandal ridden colleges. At the very least Gladys would be aware!
At 23, Gladys joined the Liberal Party in 1993, and progressed to become President of the NSW Young Liberals … Campaign Director for the State seat of Willoughby in 1999 … and worked for the Commonwealth Bank as general manager ….
ASIDE from this SMH report based on the Resolve Survey, her alleged popularity would appear to be somewhat contrary to her government record of running roughshod over much of Sydney’s communities … and this is what her ‘hardworking persona’ has meant for these communities!
Her beau Daryl engaged with developers including Chinese-owned ‘Country Garden’ that led the way for the high density high-rise precincts across Sydney with the North Ryde ‘Ryde Garden’ despite community-wide objection …
-the latest … the demolition of WILLOW GROVE!
-Heritage Windsor and the Windsor Bridge demolition to make way for sandmining (for concrete for more high-rise development)
.another community in the Hawkesbury to be impacted by the Richmond Bridge Project
–raising the Warragamba Dam Wall (for overdevelopment)
–Appin and the only chlamydia free Koala Colony threatened with extinction due to mass development and fencing to contain them
-widespread negative impact of WestConnex and NorthConnex across a huge swathe of Sydney; residents subject to compulsory acquisition of homes and businesses at below market rates … cracking in their homes; now privatised toll roads; costing Western Sydney residents some $6,000 per annum
–Sydney light rail bill passes $3 billion; known as the ‘Light Fail’
-the Sydney Metro owned by MTR Hong Kong Consortium; closing much of our public heavy rail network
–high rise high density precincts robbing low rise communities of their amenity; services all full-up!
-the heavy policing of the 12 LGAs with High Covid numbers
Gladys alleged ‘hardworking public servant persona’ put to good use to bury her major error with the ‘Ruby Princess’ when almost 2,700 passengers – some coughing and spluttering – were allowed to leave the ship at Sydney Harbour, catching trains, buses and even overseas flights to get home that led to the spread of Covid across the country!
Three days ago … ‘the leaked email revealing how Gladys Berejiklian split Sydney in TWO – forcing the west into a draconian curfew with soldiers on the streets while the east and north roamed free’
Her government ignored Dr Kerry Chant’s advice to apply the same rules across Sydney
Dr Chant told Brad Hazzard to use consistent restrictions
