It’s a great-looking cabinet (notwithstanding its one glaring omission)

Yes, Alf has seen the list of who’s who in the new cabinet.

And yes, he knows the name of the long-serving and much-admired member for Eketahuna North is not there. Crowded out by the need to accommmodate MPs from other parties, no doubt, which makes Alf very hostile towards MMP as well as towards John Banks, Pita Sharples, Tariana Turia and the Tosser from Tawa.

Can a deeply wounded back-bencher demand a recount – or a judicial review or some such?

Mrs Grumble says he can’t. No doubt she is right. She is a source of solid advice on this sort of thing.

But Alf congratulates those of his colleagues who have done well out of the cabinet announcement, and wishes them well.

He also points out that it would be a strong line-up, no matter – more or less – who was named in it. Such is the strength of the National caucus.

    Maybe next time there will be a Minister for Blogging.

    Yes, Elle – a great idea. With several departmental staff and a budget of a few million dollars. A chief executive will be required. Howz about you considering being the first Director-General of the Ministry of Blogging?
