Gallop quits

16 01 2006

WA Premier Geoff Gallop has resigned from politics suddenly and unexpectedly, citing depression. Often derided as “Good News Gallop” by WA’s right-wing press (there being no centre or left-wing press), he had some half-decent policies–particularly concerning industrial relations, public transport and housing, and the environment–and it is to be hoped that he makes a swift recovery.

Former ABC 7.30 Report presenter Alan Carpenter and former Opposition Leader Jim McGinty have been cited as frontrunners for the post.
