I will give examples of things that have been said. For example, a claim that, when a woman is personally abused by a bikie, it is being sanctioned by the Prime Minister, is a claim that was made by the Leader of the Opposition on 27 July last year in the House. It was not true. It was not sought to be withdrawn. It was accepted within the realms of parliamentary debate. Similarly, it was claimed, when we were in opposition, that we were backing paedophiles over Australian kids.
