A different kind of cabinet reshuffle | The Canberra Times


news, latest-news,

Looking for a unique Christmas present? Why not do your own cabinet reshuffle and buy a deck of cards featuring all your favourite politicians, commentators and general movers and shakers? Sydney artist Alex Goodwin, whose pollie-focused gift and design business is called Parliament House of Cards, has released a new deck, available in Senate red or House of Reps green. Among those who made it onto a card are ACT senator Katy Gallagher and “Ken Behrens”, as well as Peter Dutton, Bob Katter, Annabel Crabb, Gladys Berejiklian and Norman Swan. There is also a “government empathy consultant” and a Twitter sewer rat, the phrase famously coined by Nine political correspondent Chris Uhlmann. Grace Tame and Brittany Higgins are queens in the pack. The joker cards feature Prime Minister Scott Morrison and outspoken Coalition backbencher George Christensen. The new deck is called Cabinet Reshuffle. “I’ve drawn 54 new cartoons for the deck, a lot of new personalities, and you’ll probably notice a strong emphasis on women,” Alex said. “I drew many of the cartoons earlier in the year after the March 4 Justice, and I wanted to showcase many of the strong voices who spoke up at the time.” Our journalists work hard to provide local, up-to-date news to the community.
