Bob Carr’s five state ministries

On last night’s Q&A, former NSW Premier Bob Carr said he believed the country’s state and territory governments were of diminishing importance. He predicted that within decades, the state governments would be reduced to a mere five portfolios, with the remainder of responsibilities taken up by federal or local governments.

Based on Bob’s track record, I suspect the five ministries he had in mind where:

  1. Department of Corruption and Bribe-taking
  2. Department of Under-investing in Infrastructure
  3. Department of Selling Public Assets at Ridiculously Low Prices to Macquarie Bank
  4. Department of Planning, the Environment and Overturning Any Regulations That Might Inconvenience Property Developers
  5. Department of Spin, Hypocrisy and Emergency Services

Any other suggestions?
