Bryan Green back in - the Phoenix rises! Poor Alison, way out of her depth. Her ambition has always been greater than her talent for politics.

The Left have tapped her on the shoulder I reckon to make Green the only choice for Bart.

There is no-one else to promote (he wouldn’t dare further enrage the punters by bringing Konsman back from the dead) and he just can’t lump any more portfolio responsibilities on the existing ministers.

The day they cut the numbers without putting a unicameral parliament in place was the end of good governance in Tasmania.

The other option would be to appoint under-achiever extrordinaire Brenton Worst (oops, I mean Best) as the Speaker of the House and give Polley a portfolio of say, Local Government, Sport, Rec and Racing.

He has the experience and the networks and is a hard man of the ALP.

The Government MUST introduce Legislation to increase the members of parliament back to 7 per electorate (the voters would have to support that as they have now experienced the dismal outcome of having less members).

After the next election when Best and Kons lose their seats, Polley can have his Speakers job back and with any luck labor will be able to attract some worthwhile candidates capable of being good Ministers from the start.

Interesting times indeed!
