Apparently, Peter Debnam is to "put ministers to work" in NSW. In the incredibly unlikely event, one assumes, that he become the next premier of NSW.This is a good idea, but NSW will require that he appoint a minimum of 26,000 ministers to replace the 26,000 public sector jobs he has vowed to axe, if services in NSW are to be maintained. Unless ministerial salaries are slashed, this would hardly be a cost-effective move.
