Responses by readers of the Sydney Morning Herald to reports of in-fighting in the NSW Labor Government:

John Greenland (Letters, January 29) says, in relation to the apparently insolvent health system, that “this is the Government, for goodness sake, not some shonky fly-by-night outfit”.

I’m afraid, John, that it is far worse; it is a shonky fly-by-four-year outfit.

Nathan Rees would not want to be admitted to a NSW hospital to have the knives removed from his back as they would not have any morphine to ease his pain.
