NSW Politics is turning more into a drama as the days go by with the former Opposition Leader John Brogden, admitted into a hospital after attempting to commit suicide just days after resigning from the leadership of the NSW Liberal Party. After apologising for his behaviour at a function last night and labelling former NSW Premier Bob Carr's wife a mail-order bride, the Carr's refused to accept his apology. However after last nights events they've decided to forgive him and also mentioning that we're a forgiving society after sounding not so forgiving at the beginning of the week. Mr Carr today said Mr Brogden could still have a future in politics. It is a sad situation that someone would have to resort to trying to take their life to be able to achieve the recognition that they deserve, but then that's the sort of behaviour you do need to be careful of in politics. It raises the question of how tolerant and forgiving can people be just to raise a point.
