Too close, too personal


So it was for those following along with NSW’s Independent Commission Against Corruption hearing yesterday… Former Wagga MP Daryl Maguire told those conducting the investigation into his former flame, ex-Premier Gladys Berejiklian, that the pair had been in love and had discussed marriage and children. Berejiklian previously said they had a “close personal relationship”, but it was not of sufficient status to disclose it. Putting the feelz aside, phone calls intercepted by investigators in 2018 had Maguire urging Berejiklian to “just throw money at Wagga” for projects  – something she said she would do. Maguire resigned a few days later when ICAC exposed a property deal where he’d taken advantage of his position as an MP. Maguire says the calls with Berejiklian merely show “politics at play”. She fronts ICAC today.
