Defeated Keneally finds comfort in church
OUTGOING NSW Premier Kristina Keneally, pictured, spent yesterday morning in church after her party’s crushing election defeat.
Stopped by reporters outside her church in Sydney’s east, Ms Keneally brushed off questions as to whether she had been right to take responsibility for Saturday’s rout of her ALP government.
Ms Keneally said on Saturday night that she took responsibility for the result and would stand down as leader of the NSW Labor Party.
Yesterday she said it was ‘‘ wonderful’’ to be back at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Kensington.
‘‘ Today we had a homily about life-giving water, and this is a parish that has given Australia a couple of ministers, a deputy PM and now a premier,’’ she told reporters.
