I have to admit, when someone from Labor labelled Pyne a 'mincing poodle', it was rather close to the mark. With his manner of speaking, he comes across as prissy, the kind of kid who everyone who could would bully at school. T

The Education portfolio is, I think, a bit of a poisoned chalice, even for the most able Minister, particularly after Abbott's unfortunate (to put it mildly!) promise to match Labor's totally unrealistic (and unfunded) spending promises during his election campaign.

With perception being damn near everything in modern day politics, Pyne hasn't seemed to be handling his portfolio as well as I'm sure he'd like to be perceived to be doing.
