One wonders what it will take for Rob Johnson to understand that the reason he's no longer police minister isn't because he was doing a brilliant job. He was dumped because he foolishly ham-fisted his way through every item that came across his desk. Since then he's been acting like a spoilt child with personal attacks on the Premier who, to his credit, has largely ignored them. Mr Johnson, grow up or retire.
