Senator Cormann, unfortunately you have not, and are not likely to for some considerable period, especially once Malcolm takes over. But for you, Senator Birmingham, to actually come into this chamber and say no-one should be allowed to move an amendment that could improve legislation or correct an error is quite disingenuous. You have promised this chamber—I have had discussions—that we are going to be here until Saturday afternoon. That is just a game of the opposition seeking to delay and demolish the NBN. You are frauds when it comes to this debate. It is just fraudulent behaviour to suggest you are remotely interested in any amendment to any of the bills that are before—
