    Interesting point to about the costs to change all the stationery etc too. Waste as well as cost. Shame.
    It costs a lot. Abbott always talks about cost cutting. Yet another example of his hypocrisy.

    I'm just sitting back watching this guy and his government dig themselves deeper and deeper over the next 3 years, waiting to say "I told you so".

    I also find it so transparent to see the missing/merged portfolios. Science, women, youth, aged. These are some of the most vulnerable groups?

    So many ministers that represented disadvantaged groups are gone.
    But don't worry we have sports. If we just throw the disabled, womenz, anyone with mental health issues and those wanting to say ... cure cancer a football or let them watch some live soccer I'm sure all will be well.

    Guys! Chillax! We don't need a science & technology minister. If we need any of that stuff Malcolm Turnbull will just invent it for us

    Yeah, same. Science is important too, for our kids with things like Autism - when science can unlock the secrets, then maybe they can stop it happening or even cure it.
