The Cabinet Reshuffle Biggest Winner

Chris Hipkins is the biggest winner of John Key’s reshuffle.

Chippie must be thinking all his Christmases has come at once because Hekia Parata is still in place and he has her number.

He nailed her every time he asked questions in the house, and National’s backbench were cringing every time she stood up to speak. 

In opposition careers are built on delivering heads and John Key has put a head nicely on the block for Chippie to cut off.

The only problem for Key is that he has wedded his own credibility to hers. He has been somewhat cunning in signalling that Hekia Parata succeeds or falls on her performance over the next year…but he will lose develop some tarnish to his shine.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.
