Sycophant of the Year
In 2007, Williams Government issued nearly 130 press releases in which it referred to itself as "Williams Government".
In third place, with fourteen press releases honouring His Good Name, was Tom Marshall.
In a tie for first place, with 29 apiece...
(Insert trumroll here.)
Joan Burke and John Hickey!
That's a tie, which means there must be a tie-breaker. And the tie-breaker is... who is the first Minister to issue a Williams Government press release in 2008.
The winner, on the tie-breaker... Joan Burke! Congratulations, Joan!
And oh yeah — the Minister with sole ownership of second place, before the tie-breaker, with twenty bits of Williams Government puffery during 2007 is... Danny Williams!
