After Gunns shares plummet, massive media speculation and rumours of intense pressure from investors and within Gunns itself, John Gay finally takes a hike. Did he jump or was he pushed (cough, cough)?
Gunns shares close at a massive 27.5 cents
This is what some of Tasmania's brown nose politicians said.
Premier David Bartlett - "I was just getting used to the sound of his voice. Now who will be there to pull me into line?"When John told me to backflip, I backflipped so hard I nearly put out my back & nearly lost my job"
Opposition Leader Will Hodgman - "When John said jump, all of us in the Tasmanian Liberals said 'how high'. I will miss taking oders from John. When John stuck the boots into the RPDC i was right there beside him agreeing all the way. I just love Gunns"
Rene Hidding "I wanted to have dinner with John every night. Thats what i said."
Peter Gutwein "I was right there with John when those greenies drew a green squiggly dick on his front fence"
Michael Aird - "I went to Europe with John"
Lara Giddings - "So did I"
The rest of the Tasmanian Liberal and Labor parties "So did we. We will miss you Mr Premier"
