Will you be taking this afternoon off?

Thursday 19 June, 2014
On Nova yesterday, NSW Premier Mike Baird gave NSW workers his permission to take the afternoon off if the Blues won last night's State of Origin match.

Chanelling Bob Hawke on Fitzy and Wippa's show yesterday, Baird said:

"...any boss who doesn’t give their employees an early mark if we win tomorrow is a BUM!"

Getting him into the Hawkey spirit, Fitzy and Wippa gave Baird a suitably loud Bob Hawke style jacket to wear for the big match.
