    What "interfaith dialogue" has that waste of oxygen ever engaged in beyond his fact-free pandering to homophobic evangelicals in South Auckland?

    "Bridging bigotry" was discarded as an impolitic name for the portfolio.

    Curran has put in the work though, and may be the better current candidate for it. As in Dyson's case, elevation in the ranking is not necessarily a way of serving the portfolio better.

    Sio and Sepuloni also up there for Pasifika support.

    They also both won their seats.

    Who has responsibility for Broadcasting /Communications? It seems to rate so lowly these days,

    Curran?

    I know of one thing Louisa Wall managed, for instance.

    What are Ardern's achievements, out of interest?

    Can you name some prominent examples of her achievements for those of us who they must have completely passed by?

    That game is not going to be fun to play if one runs through the current caucus, let's face it.

    Do you know of significant House performances by Mahuta that've passed me by maybe?

    Assuming she will under-perform in her portfolio seems about as unwarranted as the assumption that Ardern will shine - she was absolutely awful on social development and had to be taken off Paula Bennett duties. But yes, I think if you have to make such assumptions it pays to name the person correctly or it comes across as doubly dismissive.

    Hope she gets in in a year, yes.

    Thus, should Huata's effectiveness in the House match her history, she can be quietly relegated

    Way to be snide whilst completely failing to name the person correctly.

    Although I have some hope, as I said, that Robertson will be inclined to defend the policy core.

    It's going to be genuinely interesting to see if Robertson grows into the role, and becomes less cautious. He finally has a role that is not all about strategising, but has actual political content.
