    23 Of The Internet's Best Reactions To Gladys Berejiklian's Resignation

    "Whatever you think of Gladys, I shudder to think who may replace her."

    Gladys Berejiklian has today announced her "difficult decision" to resign as premier of New South Wales.

    Speaking to the press on Friday afternoon, Berejiklian announced she was resigning from her position, but would not step down until a new premier was elected: "Standing aside is not an option for me as the premier of New South Wales," she said. "My resignation will take effect as soon as the Liberal party can elect a new parliamentary leader in order to allow the new leader and government, a fresh start."

    "I love my job and I love serving the community, but I have been given no option...I do not want to be a distraction from what should be the focus of the state government during this pandemic, which is the wellbeing of our citizens. It always has been and always will be."

    Now, whether or not you agreed with Berejiklian's policies or decision-making over the course of her term, there's no denying she served up some unforgettable moments — and spawned more than a few memes.

    Gladys being one of the world’s more effective leaders in a globally historic pandemic, only to brought down by a skeet shooting range in Wagga Wagga is absolutely the banter outcome.

    Told my mum Berejiklian might resign, and she said she never forgave her for using discounts to encourage the uptake of Opal cards and then removing the discounts

    Gladys Berejiklian is continuing to uphold the long standing New South Wales tradition of premiers never serving a full parliamentary term and honestly, I respect that.
