To be fair every constituency MP in every jurisdiction in the world claims that their constituency is their main priority, even if they only visit once a month and can't make their way around without a local guide (one thinks of Mandelson and Hartlepool). 

Mandelson had fish, chips & mushy peas in a Hartlepool chippy once  and asked for more of the crushed avocado dip.

DOI needs to be broken down into it's component parts to provide the essential services. The rest needs binning off - horse trams for example. 

He was already on the DOI committee for the promenade and obviously did nothing to hold the CEO and execs to account, make sense why they would want a yes man.

What power do those committees have? As far as I'm aware they have the power to summon witnesses and ask questions, but they have no power beyond issuing a report?

Indeed. And who's going to be paying for his learning curve?

He can't do any worse than Harmer or Baker, He might even turn it around as he likes to conform to public opinion. So he might just be the right person who could bring about change. He needs to pick the right people around him , Peters and Haywood would be my guess as they are new.

Jane PW would be a good choice for DOI minister and would likely be capable of deconstructing it. 

Why? What skills does she have that makes you think she would be a good DOI minister?

 

Only asking as I don’t know her and have only seen her in the PAC committee.

The new thing seems to be that JPW would be best at everything - DOI Minister, Chief Minister, tamer of the CS/PS 'Mandarins', you name it

Last week it was Alf Cannan to be the nation's saviour as Chief Minister

Our youngsters - the under 50s - seem to have a passion for these quasi-authoritarian figures of the establishment that quite baffles me

A "good DOI minister" doesn't exist, nor is it likely to as long as the DOI exists in its present form.

JP-W's analytical and critical attributes are best left unencumbered by an albatross around the neck like the DOI.

The record of the last  6 ministers of the DOI I think

Gawne,Cregeen,Harmer and Baker have lost their seats

Cretney and Skelly jumped to the safety of the Legislative Council.

Time for Rob to step up to the plate.

That is why he’s perfect for the DOI and exactly what they will want. Another complete hapless fool like Harmer and Baker to take the full brunt their incompetence so they don’t have to. 

Until the DOI is re-organised the minister is irrelevant. maybe DOT and DOE?
