After torrential rain hit the eastern coast of Australia, the New South Wales Government was forced to declare 38 disaster zones across the state. Once they did, it was only a matter of time before someone asked the simple question, ‘What about Mt Druitt?’ Luckily, Premier Gladys Berejiklian answered that question openly and honestly.
“Let’s be frank, that place is a shithole,” said Premier Berejiklian. “Drugs. Crime. Unemployment. Mullets galore. I mean, who wears a flanno around their waste in summer let alone during floods? Why would you need a flanno in a flood? Jesus Christ! I’ll happily add that as the 39th disaster zone of this State.”
Cleverly, the Premier has received very little backlash to these comments as they have only been repeated in the print media. Naturally, she runs the risk that someone will film her and put this online, but given the lack of phone credit and outstanding debts to their dealers, that is a risk this leader is willing to take.
