And he said, 'That John Forrest'—he was the National Party whip—'he'll just come straight in that door.' So as soon as all this concoction was put in place, one of his staff said, 'Bob! Bob!' And Bob—round and round the pot plant—said, 'What do you want?' It was some menial task. Anyway, I remember that moment very, very fondly. I pay my regards to John Forrest too: one of the real Christians in this parliament, not only in his beliefs but also in the way he practises them. I think there are real messages in some of the things that he said the other day.

Just to conclude on Bob, before I thank my supporters and family: I remember flying back to Sydney with Joe Hockey. Joe and I were sitting there—and I have known Joe since the previous hung parliament, the New South Wales one; he was a runner for the Premier. I wish you well, Joe. He is out there somewhere.
