FIREBRAND radio host Alan Jones has laid into NSW Premier Mike Baird, saying he runs an administration where only his opinions matter and labelling him "Kim Jong Baird”, Australia's version of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Jones said the NSW Government was "in disarray” and laid the blame at the decisions to force councils to merge, its support of the Independent Commission Against Corruption, the proposed move of the Powerhouse Museum from the CBD to Western Sydney and the axing of greyhound racing. - NEWS CORP
