A political analyst last night (can't remember which one) questioned that
He said that it is no certainty due to Pete's 'gaffes' during the campaign.Not
sure if this was just his own personal opinion or if it came from a Labor
I'd be surprised if he doesn't get the gig...... Although he is considered a bit
radical by conservative Australians,there would be no one in any doubt that
he was a minister with PASSION for his portfolio. Not just someone
shoehorned into a portfolio they have to fake enthusiasm for.I personally think
most of the people who would be uncomfortable with Pete as environment
minister,are people that would never vote Labor anyway.
Pete has certainly proved that he is willing to toe the party line (even if he
may let slip his REAL feelings occaisionally).He has said all along that he will
fight like hell in the party room for his beliefs,but once decided,will back
party policy whether it goes against his personal feelings. I think he has
proven that is true.
And it's not like he is all of a sudden going to be more scrutinised.Everything
he does is already scrutinised the the nth degree by the Government and the
media.More so than any opposition front bencher that i can
