Carr resigns!

Not sure if it's a matter of jumping off a sinking ship, as I don't follow NSW politics all that much these days, but Bob Carr surely pulled off a pearler today by surprisingly announcing his resignation. My memories of Bob are from 1986 or 87, being called up to lend support whilst he did a tour of the Eastern Suburbs on a Public Bus. It was very onerous, involving looking like an interested passenger on the bus when the local member just pops on board to have a ride. He seemed all right, not a people person, quite shy in fact. I think that NSW has done OK under his reign, and I can't see an obvious successor, it will be an interesting selection/election.

Some interesting commentary at Tree of Truth.
