The duds and dazzlers on Abbott's frontbench

A series of budget blunders have put the Abbott government under serious pressure in the opinion polls, but a Cabinet reshuffle could help it get back on track and realise its vision for Australia.

Unless there is a dramatic improvement in the government’s performance during the current parliamentary sitting, Joe Hockey is in great danger of losing the Treasury portfolio, and Christopher Pyne and Peter Dutton will be under pressure in education and health.

We can now see clearly who the outstanding performers are in government ranks and why the government finds itself in so much trouble in the opinion polls.
