Once again, this is traversing old history. I do not know where Senator McEwen has been for the past few months. In relation to the Commission of Audit, we indicated at that very time that this was a report to government, not from government, and we ruled that recommendation out immediately. I, in fact, issued a media release ruling it out. So why would Senator McEwen come in here deliberately peddling that which has already been ruled out? When the Labor Party are in strife, when the Labor Party is shown to have no policies in the important areas, what do they do? They break the glass and they reach for workplace relations policies. You have tried for the last four years and you have failed. You will continue to fail.
