De­feated Ke­neally finds com­fort in church

Townsville Bulletin - - National Snapshot -

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.
