Goodbye to a do-nothing federal minister….

Last month Australia’s Infrastructure and Transport Minister Darren Chester was dumped from the Australian federal cabinet in a ministerial reshuffle of the Turnbull government, probably dumped as a result of political battles within the coalition rather than his performance or lack of as a minister. I won’t miss a minister who showed zero interest in the serious vehicle safety hazards in Australia covered in this blog when they were bought to his attention last year, but I can’t say that his shadow Anthony Albanese showed any real interest in those matters either, and I don’t hold out much hope that the new federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Barnaby Joyce will show any interest or do anything at all. Does Australia get the government that it deserves?
