  • I for one am happy we have such a diligent and committed member of parliament in Trish Doyle, she has taken the issue up magnificently and if only we had more Labor members like her the working class of NSW would be much better off. I hope that she gets the Transport portfolio when Labor beat these useless spivs and shonks from the LNP in 2019, hurrah!
