Two stories in the SST on Labour’s upcoming reshuffle. The first looks at Margaret Wilson going to London next year, so a Minister being designated as her replacement in advance. Cullen (who would be great) and Burton are named, but Cullen likes his current job it seems.
They name the Ministers under scrutiny as Burton, Mallard, Tizard, Barker, O’Connor, Ririnui and Okeroa. The new Ministers likely to be Jones, Street and Chadwick.
In the second article they look more at portfolios. Hodgson’s bad performance in health suggests that maybe Goff could be given that job – which would also usefully help bury his leadership ambitions.
