Cabinet Shuffle – So what?
Once again all those who like to speculate on the importance and the meaning of the upcoming cabinet shuffle are busily speculating away, ruminating about new faces and fresh blood to help pull the government out of its self-dug hole. Who is in and who is out?
But what difference does it really make the way this current government handles its ministers and deputies? They are tightly-leashed nonentities wrapped in muzzles with only the benighted ones having permission to speak – and that usually only the talking points supplied by the PMO. Unless of course something blows up and then the “lucky” minister or deputy-pit bull is pushed out in front of the cameras to dutifully explain the government’s spin (text of course from the PMO) and take the flack, while looking foolish or insincere in the process.
So if we change one bunch of muzzled nonentities for another, so what?
