Further to Monday’s post, have had time to crunch some more numbers.
The Labour front bench (of nine) has an average rating of 5.3 with scores ranging from 4.0 to 7.0. The National front bench has an average rating of 7.6 with scores ranging from 6.5 to 9.0.
If we look at the Cabinet of 20 (excluding Joyce who is not rated as a new MP), the average rating is 6.8 with a range from 4 to 9. Only one Cabinet Minister is ranked below 5.0. Labour’s shadow cabinet has an average rating of 4.8 with a range from 1.0 to 7.0.
The overall Executive of 28 rates a bit lower with a 6.2 average, but still higher than the Labour frontbench’s 5.3.
It will be interesting to see how the scores have changed in a year’s time.Tags: Parliament, Transtasman
