As a former teacher of over 15 years I have had too many phone calls, messages and emails from former colleagues, parents and even past students over the last few weeks. The common theme in all this correspondence is what in the hell is the Prime Minister, NSW Premier and Minister for Education bumbling along with when it comes schools and covid-19.
Just when we thought that the opportune resignation of the Arts Minister Don Harwin, may have resulted in some sanity being brought into the Powerhouse project, it only gets worse. Now the Premier of New South Wales Gladys Berejiklian is taking over as Arts Minister.
Given the disaster that has hit our community with the Covid-19 virus, the cost to the economy and the Arts community in NSW, one would think that perhaps sanity would prevail, and the government dump this vanity project?
But no, it seems not.

Leader of the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party The Hon. Robert Borsak MLC today, Thursday 16th April 2020, aired his growing concerns for the increased infringement of privacy and erosion of freedoms in our society, under the guise of community protection from the COVID-19 pandemic.
John Barilaro has come out this week and said, “rugby league is at the heart of everything we do in NSW”, and that he will happily become the “conduit” between the Government and the NRL, so they can reopen on the very optimistic date of May 28.
Since when did Mr Barilaro, Deputy Premier and the Minister for Regional New South Wales, Industry and Trade, also become a conduit between a sport and the Government, instead of the Minister for Sport, who would generally be tasked with such a responsibility.
NSW Deputy Premier is engaging in Ruby Princess-style buck passing by blaming the federal government for farmers not having water, says SFF Murray MP Helen Dalton.
