#O’Farrell Finance Minister warned after appearing to be drunk in #parliament | #NSWpol
The New South Wales Premier has given his Finance Minister Greg Pearce a stern warning over allegations he had to be sent home from parliament because he was drunk.
In the early hours of Thursday morning, as other Upper House MPs sat through a marathon debate on victims of crime compensation laws, Greg Pearce was given a pair and allowed to leave.
The official reason given was that he was unwell, but Upper House sources say he had been seen drinking at a Liberal Party fundraiser at parliament and appeared to be too drunk to continue.

This Govt is starting to show cracks. The hypocrisy emanating Premier O’Farrell’s cabinet is a disgrace.
