Questions without Notice
Tonight, the Leader of the Opposition, if he wishes to spend more on something—he says the budget deficit is too big; he says the debt is too great—needs to say what he is going to cut. He needs to say which roads, which dams, which hospitals, which schools. The Leader of the Opposition has an each-way bet on everything. He would go for a win and a place in a two-horse race. That is what this Leader of the Opposition is about. He is the biggest each-way operator that we've seen come into this place. He's for everything and he's against everything at exactly the same time. I've got a tip for the Leader of the Opposition: if you're a person of conviction, you need to be consistent in what you're for and consistent in what you're against. You can't be for both at the same time. When this Leader of the Opposition sat in that chair, he became an each-way bet on everything, which means he can't be counted on for anything.
