Will the affair sink the Premier?

News.com.au reports:

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has declared: “I won’t resign” over bombshell revelations that she conducted a clandestine relationship with former MP Daryl Maguire who is now the subject of a corruption probe.

After confessing for the first time that she was in a “close, personal relationship” with the father of two, Ms Berejiklian has declared she has no intention of standing down as premier because she “hadn’t done anything wrong”.

“If I had done something wrong, I would be the first one to consider my position. But I haven’t,” Ms Berejiklian said in a press conference on Monday.

“I’m an intensely private person and without question, I stuffed up in my personal life.

It wasn’t even an affair as she is single and Maguire was seperated.

But for the Premier to have a five year relationship with an MP who had to resign over corrupt activities is a huge error of judgment. I suspect it will be curtains for her.
