Unfortunately there will not be an Aviation minister but as per usual a Minister for Transport and Infrastructure. Labor always appoint a member who has a near airport electorate and Libs always a Nationals farmer who is interested in exporting produce.
In our dreams it would be Xenophon, but of course he is not in the lower house, not a Lib, though he leans that way, but he is by far the most interested in aviation transport. Who knows who they will get, in the lap of the Gods, but at least a new broom.
This is the problem in a nutshell with the alternative government. Nobody knows. Policies. Ministers. Anything. Just that they are not incumbent. It is a sad indictment of our politics, our current government and our media who are more interested in titillation and oneupmanship that real policy issues.
I for one am going to miss the honesty and integrity of Bob Brown - love him or hate him, he always stood up for his beliefs rather than be push-polled by the beliefs of marginal electorates.
Folks, Unless something strange happens (and unprecedented), the next Minister for Transport (the breakup of "Infrastructure" is likely) will be Warren Truss. This is in accord with traditional Liberal/National arrangements. Tootle pip!!
Interesting LeadSled, but I hope not. With amalgamation of the Liberal and National Parties in Queensland, I suspect the Nationals will have a far lower profile in the Federal Coalition. And Truss is now LNP, not National.
Clearly Albanese outshone Anderson, but Truss could be a clear winner, based on past performance.

Watch the "dark horse" in the race, (if accepting that poison chalice is worth racing for), one Barnaby Joyce who is seeking a Lower House Seat for The National Party. Does this put him up for Deputy Prime Minister if Truss is out of centre stage?
'Hell train station is situated at a railway junction where the Nordlandsbanen rail line north to Bodø branches off from the Meråkerbanen between Trondheim and Storlien, Sweden. Hell Station is currently a manned railway station.'
Taily... Did you mean Albo outdid Anderson in the "do nothing" stakes.?? They might think the sun shines from their respective fundamentals, but it has remained very dark in GA, still under the CASA cloud. during both.
Truss... as in bridge girder...can't recall much light there either. Will he 'shine' again.? Doubtful.
-5C in CB.? So? Bit like CASA really...that's a colossal snow job where the changes are slower than Antarctic glacial.
