Top NSW Nat a fighter but not a brawler


Parliamentary colleagues describe him as one of the good guys of NSW politics and a straight shooter.

New Nationals leader Paul Toole hails from the central west and says he’s more comfortable in a pair of chinos without a tie. He enjoys a beer with mates and wasabi on top of a sandwich.

The father of three is speaking to AAP at his parliamentary office early Thursday morning, business suit on.

And despite the hour, it’s all smiles.

“I’ve already found my mornings start a lot earlier and my days finish a lot later than they used to,” he says.

Despite clocking on at 6am, the new deputy premier won’t wrap things up till 10pm but he’s hopeful the workload will soon return to something ‘normal’.

“I’m far from a lone ranger on this,” he says.

“Plenty of people are doing big hours at the moment as businesses re-open and harvest gets underway in the bush.”

The commitment, he says, is worth it to help bring stability – something the NSW government desperately needs.
