Well, from our perspective, we are abolishing—totally abolishing. It is all gone. And I would say to the minister for regional development, ‘Watch this space,’ because I am sure this will be a very interesting debate on the carbon tax. I thought that, when the former Prime Minister, the member for Griffith, said in 1999 in relation to the GST that 1 July would be—was it ‘a day of infamy’? Maybe I am misquoting him there. It was something along those lines. I thought, ‘Well, what about the day he was dumped as Prime Minister? That was a pretty significant day.’
