Steven Marshall Reveals Jay Weatherill’s Comment To Him On Election Night

Jan 11, 2019


Steven Marshall says Jay Weatherill was “absolutely amazing” in defeat and revealed the former premier’s all class comment when he rang Mr Marshall to concede after the election.

“It’s a real privilege this job,” Mr Marshall told Tony Pilkington in a freewheeling chat on FIVEaa. “Jay said that to me when he conceded.”

“He said this is a great job, you’ll really enjoy it. I picked up the phone -- I knew he was calling because it came up on my phone because we used to chat before when I was leader of the opposition and he was the premier.

“He phoned and he said, ‘Good evening, premier.’

“He’s a good guy.”
