on indulgence—I want to absolutely pay tribute to the member for Lingiari. As the veterans' affairs minister, I'm just reminded, the member for Lingiari described himself as a relic. Well, we in the National Party think you're more of a treasure than a relic. We in the National Party will pass the hat around and buy you a new swag. You're going to need it! The Northern Territory News, one of my favourite papers, should have on the front page tomorrow not a crocodile but 'Man with the mo to go'. You've been a great contributor. I used to write a few headlines once upon a time. I like to think I still can. If the editor is watching, consider it!

When I went to the Northern Territory in August, I bumped into Elizabeth and Warren.
