Questions without Notice
I thank the honourable member for his question. This government certainly are very proud of the fact that we've been able to stop deaths at sea, we've been able to get the children out of detention that Labor put into detention and we have a very stable and certain policy offering when it comes to national security and border protection. But, as it turns out, that's not the case on the Labor side of this parliament. I'm not often found in this place quoting James Campbell, but he published an interesting article on 4 September. It went something like this—it's content rich; maybe we'll come back to it again, but in the time limit we have today I'll just quote part of it—'Kristina Keneally thinks she is on a winner by attacking border protection policies, but political history dictates that she is so, so wrong.' He says, 'Let's hear it for Shayne Neumann, a man whose political judgement looks better every day that passes.'
