He refused to go. He liked the A-G position. He is Labor through and through. He has mates, important mates.
And so Robert McClelland stays in Cabinet with a pot pourri of ‘responsibilities’- housing, homeslessness and emergency management.
I particularly like the juxtaposition of housing and homelessness – almost poetic.
And this mish-mash deserves a Cabinet post? Gosh, aren’t there a lot of tea breaks between emergencies?
But I guess this is what factional politics throws up and if someone does not want to go, they don’t have to – as long as they have the right support.
And as for 22 in Cabinet, what a joke. 12 should be tops.
