Why keep a cryptorchid?

When writing about neutering options a couple of weeks ago I mentioned that Winston Peters reminded me of a cryptorchid  because he’d kept his baubles but wasn’t being expected to perform.

Farmers use this option because cryptorchids grow bigger and so provide more meat than wethers or steers.

If Helen Clark continues to stand by Winston Peters today it will show she has a similar rationale for keeping him as a minister without responsibilities but with perks. She’s hoping that his share of the votes will grow big enough to provide her with enough seats to form a government.
