If anything means anything anymore, surely former sports minister Bridget McKenzie should be sacked as agriculture minister.

The detailed revelations from the ABC's Andrew Probyn yesterday -- the actual spreadsheet, the exact scores of those clubs funded and those overlooked, the warnings McKenzie explicitly received -- have managed to make her position even more tenuous. 

But if she does resign or is sacked, is she headed for a life of shame, disgrace and a modest job in retail? Far from it. We hear McKenzie's a hot tip for the high commissioner job in New Zealand.
