    A great lineup of new fresh faces on ExCo and importantly so, to allow new views to permeate and influence public officer views, while cementing a firm footprint on changes promised to the electorate and of the deliverables now expected, if not eagerly await by voters .

    Interesting times at the C24 if Mrs Roberts attends. Time for another myth to be quashed.
