New Labour ranking compared to list

Comparing the 2011 list position with Labour MP’s new rankings.

List
2011
New position (February 2013)
31 1. David Shearer – Science & Innovation
14 2. Grant Robertson – Employment, Arts
4 3. David Parker – Finance, Shadow Attorney-General
13 4. Jacinda Ardern – Welfare, Children
8 5. Clayton Cosgrove – SOEs, Commerce, Trade
2 6. Annette King – Health
16 7. Shane Jones – Regional Development, Foresty, Associate Finance
33 8. Phil Twyford – Housing, Auckland
7 9. Maryan Street – Environment
30 10. Chris Hipkins – Education, Chief Whip
12 11. Nanaia Mahuta – Youth, Maori Development
49 12. David Clark – Economic Development, Small Business
10 13. Sue Moroney – ACC, ECE, Women’s Affairs
17 14. Su’a William Sio – Local Government, Pacific
1 15. Phil Goff – Foreign Affairs, State Services, Defence
18 16. Darien Fenton – Labour, Immigration, Junior Whip
 - 17. Damien O’Connor – Primary Industries, Food Safety
28 18. Clare Curran – Comms/ICT, Open Govt
15 19. Andrew Little – Justice, Tourism
47 20. Megan Woods – Tertiary Education

There’s been significant reshuffling of the Labour pecking order, and David Shearer is probably the most dramatic mover, especially considering he was only a two year MP when he became leader.

Only six of the other 33 MPs were lower than Shearer on the 2011 list:

31. David Shearer
33. Phil Twyford
37. Iain Lees-Galloway
41. Kris Faafoi
45. Rino Tirikatene
47. Megan Woods
49. David Clark

Half of them now join Shearer in the top twenty.

This can be seen as a promotion of new talent, and also as an indication of how thin Labour talent is.
