Appointments the Governments can consider
Reflecting on the Dom Post story that the Government is looking to appoint Dr Cullen to chair a major SOE, here are some other appointments that David Farrar has suggested.
* Winston Peters to chair the Asia 2000 Foundation
* Peter Brown to chair the Immigration Review Board
* Clint Rickards as CEO of the Ministry of Women’s Affairs
Some of his readers have suggested Parekura Horomia as head of the Earthquake Commission, Brian Tamaki as head of the Aids Foundation and Kyle Chapman as Race Relations Commissioner.
Here's some of my suggested appointments:
David Lane as Chief Censor
Bob McCoskrie as Childrens Commissioner
Garth McVicar as head of the Parole Board
Ken Orr and Gordon Copeland as members of the Abortion Supervisory Committee.
Dean Wickliffe as Chief Justice.
Ron Mark - Minister of Maori Affairs
Jim Bailey - Principal Family Court Judge
Barbara Faithfull as head of the AIDS Foundation.
Graham Capill - boss of Family Planning Association
And wouldn't it be interesting if Hector Westfold was letters editor for the Dominion Post, Craig Young was the leader of a revamped Christian Heritage Party, Don Brash was leader of the Maori Party, and Sonny Thomas was Bishop of the Destiny Church.
