If you follow NSW Premier Mike Baird‘s social channels, you’ll know he’s a 10/10 bloke: whether he’s live-tweeting The Bachelor (what a time to be alive) or sharing a tear-jerky message of hope for the impact of medicinal cannabis on sick kids, his is one of few genuine voices to rise above the collective gobbledegook of #AusPol.
“I don’t write this to make you feel bad. I’ve done it all too often myself. I’ve lowered my head instead of greeting my fellow humans with a smile. I’ve been too busy to stop. I’ve felt embarrassed. I’ve felt inconvenienced. Even annoyed,” he wrote.
So, the next time you walk past a Big Issue seller on your way to / from work, give him or her a wave and a smile. Better yet, buy an issue.
