Liberal staffers not being moved “to the real world”

By johnboy - 30 October 2013 3

The Australian has word of grumblings amongst the Liberal front bench that they can’t just give their mates staffing jobs and holders of said jobs will have to work in Canberra under Peta Credlin’s iron fist:

All senior staffers have to be based in Canberra. It’s causing quite a few grumbles,” said one.

“There is a very strong oversight process.”

Another said: “The systems are put in place to allow double and triple checking of everyone’s work.”

Some see the hand of the Prime Minister’s chief of staff Peta Credlin, known as “the Queen of No”, who is also vetting all ministerial staffing appointments.

Few exceptions are being made, particularly for ministerial press secretaries and senior policy advisers.

What’s Your opinion?

So I won’t be able to apply for that job as the Director of the Byron Bay regional office…

Every beachgoer at Byron will be eternally grateful.

Oh well, I suppose they can hope for the occasional junket to Nowra – even if there’s no compo in prospect – unless, of course, a racing bike and/or budgies are involved.
