Dick, he is a politician and is expert at knowing nothing and able to talk about it for hours.

Sadly as Frank Arouet has more eloquently described it is the untouchable, unelected and unrepresentative Secretary of his Department that seems to 'run the show' uncontrolled.

One only has to look at who has been the centre of the puppet string pulling with regard to CASA, the ATSB and Pelair, the ASRR and any number of other 'inquiries' into aviation of late to see how much influence the"Minister" has. Then there was also the failed promotion and support of the former Screaming DAS as a candidate for that senior ICAO post.

Dare I say his greatest contribution to the aviation industry and aviation safety in this country would be to retire sooner rather than later.
