how the justice system works. The member for Isaacs seeks to charge, try and convict the Special Minister of State right here in the parliament, as though guilt were determined only by public denunciation. He knows better than most and the Leader of the Opposition knows better than most that, simply because somebody is being accused of something or being investigated, that does not mean that they are guilty of whatever is being looked into. They understand that there is a process of law that has to go through, and you would think that the member for Isaacs and his leader would be wise enough to say, 'Well, the police are looking at that; let's see what they find, let's see if they charge somebody, let's see what comes out of their investigations.'
