We're talking about class actions. You take away the class action, and the people have no redress against government, which is often the handmaiden of big corporations. I'm talking about the people who worked hard to better themselves, and all those opportunities have been destroyed and taken away from them. In the taxi case, we have a class action. Particularly with the state governments in Victoria and Queensland, I deeply regret that their courts just don't seem to understand the separation of powers. They seem to think they're there to service the state government. I mean, they appointed me and they pay me, so who do I work for? (Time expired)
