    RIP.

    Why in these times was he left in this position though...? And his title only handed over on an interim basis a week ago?!

    He was a real fighter. Always positive and always trying to help people.

    Rest in Peace Michael.

    The department carries the load and makes the neccesary changes. The minister is more of a front man. He would have had a deputy minister (at least one) that probably knew as much, if not more, than he did.
