gladys of mooney pond in willoughby has a brilliant solution...

housing crisis

She is a private woman who supports same-sex marriage, is compassionate towards the plight of refugees and helped sign off on the Government's signature infrastructure projects.

However, little else is known about new Premier Gladys Berejiklian's policy agenda for New South Wales.

The daughter of Armenian migrants, Ms Berejiklian was elected in the seat of Willoughby with a razor-thin margin in 2003, but 14 years on, where does she stand on the state's hot-button issues?

idiot on a junket...

Treasurer Scott Morrison has the laughable idea that the answer to housing affordability lies in taking a 23-hour flight back to the motherland.

That is, in England – home to another of the world’s least affordable capital cities, London, where property prices have tripled in the 20 years to 2015.

shock jock to solve the housing crisis...

"Ultimately, it's about creating 5000 new residences, including affordable housing, for the people of Sydney, building over $100m of community sporting facilities, and dealing with the ongoing management of heavily contaminated land in perpetuity in a positive and cost effective way."

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has accused the Federal Government of being out of touch on housing affordability after Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce suggested people move to the country if they want to purchase a home.

Mr Joyce downplayed concerns over housing affordability in Sydney, last night saying "houses will always be incredibly expensive if you can see the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge".

gladys increases the train traffic...

A Sydney train driver with 25 years' experience says his colleagues are struggling with fatigue since the recently introduced timetable increased working hours.

The claim follows the announcement today that train workers in New South Wales will be striking for 24 hours on Monday, January 29.

The news also comes in the wake of last week's rail chaos in Sydney, when thousands of customers were delayed for hours in a network-wide meltdown.

Driver Van Cremer, 66, said he worked almost 10.5 hours last Monday night, with one break.

"In an emergency you may do over 10 hours, but that seems to be happening more regularly now," he said.

"It knocks you around because we're supposed to have 11 hours between shifts."
