More Government Details

More information about Helen Clark's new government have come to hand. In addition to his portfolio as Foreign Minister, Winston Peters also becomes Associate Minister for Senior Citizens and Minister for Racing. Here's hoping he doesn't confuse his portfolios and start pondering on the best way to ship senior citizens off to the glue factory. Peter Dunne also has a associate portfolio on health but the specific portfolio area has not been announced.

Most puzzling of all is that the Greens have not given an undertaking of supply and confidence but they do have "an agreement on policy areas". What's the point of having a policy agreement?
