During the press conference at which he announced his ministry today, Prime Minister-elect Rudd said of Greg Combet, the new parliamentary secretary for defence procurement:

 He has a first class mind, and defence procurement is a first class mind field.

At least, I think he said 'mind'. I got this from the radio, so I may have misheard. But whether 'mine' or 'mind', never a truer word was spoken.
