NSW Premier Mike Baird announced his retirement today, saying it was the only humane option available, given the suffering that was being inflicted.

“As a compassionate and responsible government, we are left with no acceptable course of action except to close this thing down,” Mr Baird said at a press conference today.

Mr Baird will end his term next week and is expected to re-enter politics in around 4 month’s time.
