But it got a bit more complicated than that. The next election was held only three years later in 1991 after which it has been every four years on the odd year. The reason for that 3 year term is not known.

Whilst NSW had 4 year terms from 1984, it wasn't until 1995 that the term was fixed. Up until then, the Premier could still go to an early election, which Greiner did in 1991. He regretted it, moving from majority to minority government and then, after a series of scandals, his resignation in 1992 following an adverse ICAC ruling. John Fahey took over but lost the 1995 election to Bob Carr.

Everybody knows that the 2010 federal election was Abbott vs Gillard but what would of the 2010 federal election look like if John Howard's replacement after the 2007 election witch ended up becoming the head of the National war memorial after his time as liberal leader didn't get double crossed by Malcolm from Point Piper and Kevin 07 didn't get stabbed in the back by Julia Gillard months before the 2010

There is a federal by election coming up witch would most likely mean a Bega by election and a ministerial reshuffle if the current NSW transport minister wins that federal seat

I think he would have to resign before the election so the reshuffle would be required whether he wins or loses the election. And the by election is is not just "most likely" but definite,

Bus and Coach Drivers Association Incorporated is an industrial association and a union.
We are an "Employee Organisation" with rules that elect our leaders and regulations that stop us from giving money to Political Parties or Unions.
With a creed of Drivers for Drivers, the Management team are measured against outcomes aligned to this creed.
Bus and Coach Drivers Association Incorporated is not registered under Fair Work legislation, and we do not hold ourself out as being such an organisation.
The Fair Work Act defines "industrial association" as including
an association of employees, or independent contractors, or both (whether formed formally or informally),
a purpose of which is the protection and promotion of their interests in matters concerning their employment, or
their interests as independent contractors (as the case may be)

As an employee Association, we look to advance the employees opportunities through professional development and support for workplace matters

Well with the Eden-Monaro By Election and looking at the Results, Kristy McBain won the seat.

Personally, Im quite happy with the result (yes, its my opinion) and Looking at the Data The Greens seem to be becoming a bit more popular with 7 percent. And Labor is still sitting.

Well that sucks, I think he's alright, I also think certain people associated with the Chinese are attacking him because he calls the Chinese mongrels and with his ideas it would be the perfect time for him to rise to power and put China in their place.

It's good, take their money instead of the other way around and screw them over.

It's obvious you are into climate change unfortunately I am not but I can give you some advise, China gives off 45% of the worlds emissions the biggest of them all, Australia gives off 1.3% of the worlds emissions if you feel strongly about climate change I would suggest going after China also I've heard some climate change activists are into "animal cruelty free and guess who is the most cruel to animals ? China, they bloody eat everything 🤮🧟 Edit since Covid 19 the worlds emissions have dramatically dropped.

You know it would be called a race crime and on page 1 of the Murdoch rag if it was an Aboriginal monument rather than a 300-year-old white person.
