  4. Clueless leadership says:

    Can someone please tell me the cost of this PLP Cabinet including this new position compared to the cost of Cabinet under the OBA?

  5. Toadinthehole says:

    Why on earth is there a need to further increase the ministerial payroll!? This pisses me off as i struggle to paybmy extra taxes and health insurance.

  6. Ringmaster says:

    Why so many Junior Ministers? If the Ministers are that incompetent, fire them and replace them. Unfortunately the civil service mentality of just keep hiring seems to have taken over. Presumably he will also need the usual complement of additional consultants and advisers to help him. Must be a new tax increase to be announced.

  7. Kimberley Smith says:

    Can Mr. Richardson serve as both a Senator and a Junior Minister at the same time?

    • Onion Peels says:

      Holding multiple jobs under this regime is par for the course. You can be a junior minister and paid consultant to that ministry at the same time, as well as holding down a full time job, so why not.
