The much previewed challenge


A challenge to the leadership of NSW Premier Nathan Rees must be the most previewed such event in political history. In Crikey we have regularly updated the tens of stories — they must now be approaching the 100 mark — that have predicted the Premier’s political death isince he took over the poisoned chalice just over a year ago. This week it is the turn of theSydney Morning Herald and its Sunday stablemate the Sun Heraldto announce the death riters.

Whether they will prove any more accurate than the previous non-stories I guess we will find out in a week or two but I must say that Sunday’s effort accusing the Premier of about to become a phone tapper seems a bit over the top.
