Abbott finally comes out of hiding long enough to announce the government ministry roles.
No surprises in it given the lack of overall depth and ability – these guys are all the B side of the dismal Howard era.
As expected there is a chronic lack of women on the front bench.
Only Julie Bishop is present as Foreign Minister. Whether the undead count as a female is another matter…
There is also a curious removal of certain ministries, or “deflation” as Abbott puts it. These ministries are considered unimportant and unneeded.
Status of Women,
One would think these are key ministries with important social implications ? Not so for the new regime. Most likely they don’t make enough money…
There was however a new ministry created…wait for it…The ministry of Border Protection. Says it all really. Every fascist state needs a ministry of border Protection…
There is another wave of ominous Murdoch propaganda on the way.
