Ordinal or continuous numbering
I prefer the continous numeration system not this stupid one person one number system. Numbers are about going forward not holding back. Peter Costello is the 44th Treasurer not the 35th. This was added to the page
- "The Treasurer portfolio was split into Treasurer (senior) and Finance (junior) portfolios in 19xx."
But it may be wiser to keep it here until we have an actual year. --Roisterer 03:44, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)
- I agree. I am going to change it now, but asterisk those treasurers who have been treasurer twice. See Donald Rumsfeld. He has been both the 13th and now 21st United States Secretary of Defense. Jpe|ob 12:50, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
Why did Hawke appoint himself?
I remember at the time Hawke said something about some technical requirement that there be a person in the Treasurer's job at all times, and that having someone act as Treasurer for the one day between Keating leaving and Kerin being appointed would not have sufficed. What was that about? -- Jack of Oz ... speak! ... 00:57, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
