New season's fashions! I mean, Ministers.

Well, for all those who are desperate for any clues on election timing, the PM's announcement this afternoon of changes to the Ministry might spark further speculation.

See this press release.

(My favourite part: "These changes will further invigorate the Government and demonstrate the depth of talent available to the Coalition." Sure! Because Senator Helen Coonan looks very much like the 'invigorating' type).

Not that I have any experience in appointing Ministers or deciding on the timing of an election, but I would have to say, just from a layperson's point of view, it would seem a bit odd to appoint new Ministers and then dissolve Parliament shortly after.

Looks like we might be cooling our heels for a while?
