The bottom line is that controversy has followed  Mr Callister throughout his political career no surprise then that he is in the Ministerial wilderness.

 

Thats true but cant help feeling its self inflicted for the most part. He's tarnished now and will take awhile to throw the perception off . Think he basically got what he deserved and from his response its hard not to agree with Cannans snub.

It's not really a snub though is it? Alf has had to pick who he considers is the best for the job. Being one of the non-newbies doesn't give an MHK some sort of god given right to be a minister.

In my view it is as Rob clearly and openly said he was interested in DOI or DoE . In his eyes and again as he said he openly voted for Cannan both times and yet others who didnt have been preferred to him. If all thats not a snub not sure what is. And by his reaction he thinks so too.

Why would if they though Allinson was a better option be a factor in selecting someone for a ministers post?

It is perfectly possible for a grown adult to still support and work with someone even if they though someone else might have been a better option.

Same with saying he was interested in certain departments?  Completely irrelevant to picking the person who is best suited to the job and who would also be the best fit for the team that was being put together.

Sour grapes abs nothing else, and turning down the PO job proved that Alf made the right decision IMO

I suppose Rob feel like the lad who’s turned up for early for training every week, helped put the cones out and not been picked  for the first team. Now the manager and half the first team have left and his mate is in charge and he’s still in the Combi.

Very good analogy.

Completely self inflicted.
Reminds me of my youth when some individual was left out of the first team could never stop having a whine while others took it in an adult manner.

I took a lot of it as a good sign. If Cannan isn’t prepared to appoint on patronage just to reward people supported him then maybe it’s a change in direction from previous Comin’s? If Callister expected patronage to be the sole determining factor of getting a job then maybe he wasn’t the right candidate after all. Especially given the way he seemed to throw the toys out of the pram so quickly.

But did this young gentleman agree with the management strategy, voted with the other players to this said strategy, then decided and told everyone on facebook ,that in his five years at the club he always been against the management strategy, forgetting he had actually voted for said management strategy and that his vote had been made public. Making him look like an total and utter. He really should have been given DOI.

Rob sadly is become  a political liability ,and probably no one wants to work with him ,  you can not possibly conduct sensitive government business on social media , many think he is a Tosser !, all this unfortunately is very much of his own making ,even in politics  there are unwritten rules and standards to maintain which he seems to ignore

Could happen to 'Anyone.'
