‘I find it very disappointing’: Alan Jones’ take on the PM’s ministry

Alan Jones says there are some “very disappointing” omissions from the Prime Minister’s new ministry.

Scott Morrison announced the post-election reshuffle on Sunday afternoon with a record seven women in Cabinet.

Environment Minister Melissa Price has been demoted to the Defence Industry portfolio while Communications Minister Mitch Fifield will be recommended as the next Ambassador to the United Nations.

Former Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce has been ditched from his role Special Envoy for the Drought and only found out through watching the news.

Alan Jones says the announcement featured some glaring omissions that will hurt the government.

“At a personal level, I find it very disappointing that there’s no room, amongst people who are unknown, for Andrew Hastie.

“No room for Dave Sharma, no room for Barnaby Joyce… Amanda Stoker, no room for her and John Alexander.

“You can’t fit them all in, I know, but there are some there I wouldn’t have.”
