The Wash up ...

Make your way to the bookie, people - here's the damage ...

In The Winner's Circle ...
  • Frank Sartor - Retains Redfern/Waterloo and Cancer, Science and Medical Research but drops Utilities and picks up Planning (now separate from Infrastructure)

  • Michael Costa - Drops Roads to the trusty Joe Tripodi (like he gives a shit, what did he ever care about what happened to a road in NSW?) and picks up the newly created Finance and the newly separated-into-a-different portfolio Infrastructure.

  • John Hatzistergos - Drops Justice and picks up Morris Iemma's former portfolio of Health, and the newly created portfolio of Drugs and Alcohol (Minister for Drugs and Alcohol - that'll look good on the letterhead!)

  • Carl Scully - Retains Police and takes on Utilities (crikey - so much for the `no hard feelings ... here's a prestigious but bloody simple portfolio')

  • Tony Kelly - Takes on Justice and Juvenile Justice (woohoo! Spot on! :D) in addition to his current Emergency Services portfolio (haven't heard whether he retains Local Government).

In The Centre Of The Field
John Watkins, Carmel Tebbutt, Reba Meagher and John Della Bosca all remain unchanged.

Way Back ...
  • Diane Beamer - Miraculously remains in the cabinet but takes on the portfolio of Whingers and Broken Stuff (i.e. Fair Trading).

Three portfolios remain to be filled, meaning three starry-eyed little ministers will be elevated in the near future. I'm tipping Kristina Keneally for Aboriginal Affairs, Eric Roozendaal for Ports and Waterways, and hmmm ... the third one's a kicker ... let's just see, shall we?
