Sydney reacts to NSW Premier Mike Baird’s resignation
This morning NSW Premier Mike Baird announced he’s retiring from politics after ten years in the game and if you’ve been on Facebook or Twitter today, there’s absolutely no chance you missed that news.
The shock announcement comes just two days before Keep Sydney Open stage their third anti-lockouts rally in Kings Cross, meaning you might have to rethink that clever “It’s not my Baird time” poster. While the Premier’s exit doesn’t mean the lockout laws are going anywhere, that hasn’t stopped the people of Sydney making their feelings about his retirement loud and clear – below, we’ve collected some of the best reactions to this morning’s news.

Mike Baird resigns, wants to celebrate his awful career with a few drinks in Sydney on Saturday night, realises what he has done.

I’m certain that a new premier will fix everything that’s wrong in NSW, especially if they’re from the same political party.
