Three letters from SMH readers on the state of the NSW government:

Yesterday’s Moir cartoon is wrong on so many counts. The clown is way over-qualified for a job in state cabinet. He brought his suitcase, which implies he intends staying for a while. The clerk refers to “a possible vacancy”, when in fact there are many immediate vacancies. However, it did have one redeeming feature: it was very funny.

Max Perry Maroubra

The clown should forget about the suggestion from the man behind the desk. My advice is to stick to the real circus and at the end of your career retire graciously. The last thing you need on your résumé is “former cabinet minister, NSW Government”.

Allan Gibson Cherrybrook

The state flag flying on the western arch of the Harbour Bridge is indicative of the state of NSW – it is in tatters.
