Cabinet reshuffle

I'll offer this brief observance of the moves in an attempt to not add to much to the already huge amount of comment on the subject.

If its not broke... then don't fix it

From where I am sitting its not broke and it seems somewhere in the vicinity of 40-50% of New Zealanders agree if the polls are anything to go by.

Why mix things up before the election creating uncertainty?
Why create expectations when they may have to be dashed following post-election maneuvers?
Why not allow experienced ministers who know their portfolios well, to go into the election campaign with that experience and taking/using that knowledge to good effect?
Why not make a few changes to the associates in order to signal the future faces and direction of the government?
