Nick Sherry: The man who knew too much

This was Gillard, yesterday:
"Nick’s personal interest and more than 20 years experience in the Australian superannuation system made him a valuable asset as an economic Minister during the Global Financial Crisis when he oversaw elements of the superannuation system."

She is right. Nick Sherry knew more about superannuation than anyone else in the government.

So he was removed from that portfolio and given another one so minister after minister could get on with the business of ramping up compulsory superannuation, something Nick didn't agree with and the Henry Review recommended against.

If only he had known less.
