A brief note on a piece that caught my eye last week:
Judith Collins relegated to lowly select committee
Two former ministers will settle into life as backbench MPs sitting together on one of the lower profile select committees.
Details of the make up of select committees are expected to be announced soon, however it’s understood National has lined up former Justice Minister Judith Collins and former Building and Construction Minister Maurice Williamson to sit on the education and science committee.
The “lower profile” education and science committee. “Lowly” education and science. I’m sure it’s true, but – but – imagine a country in which education and science were valued?
