Coming to the end of the Wednesday sitting. Government has made enormous progress since John Carter took over house leadership from Gerry Brownlee. Carters experience has been invaluable and if Key works on the basis of talent he will be in Cabinet for Wayne Mapp or Kate Wilkinson when Key reshuffles later in the year.
I was pretty worried when Michael Cullen left. I’m now confident that with the young ginga we have someone who can run the house in government. He has done a great job over the whole sitting day.
