Premier Mike Baird has refused my request that he visit the Dapto Dogs to listen to concerns from the greyhound racing industry in the Illawarra following his decision to shut down the industry from 1 July 2017.
The Premier is gutless and a coward. There is no other way to describe this arrogance.
He’ll make announcements by press release but won’t follow up on a request that he meet with real people – face-to-face – on the ground at the Dapto Dogs to understand the depth of feeling his decision has caused.
What’s Mike Baird afraid of?
I say to the Premier: if you want to make decisions that impact on people’s lives, have the decency and guts to front up.
