Senator Ludlam is a lot better informed about the agenda of the Institute of Public Affairs than I am, and therefore I am willing to accept that items 50 and 51 of the IPA's agenda might include that in it. I confirm to Senator Ludlam and, indeed, all Australians that this is a government that will not be dictated to by any agenda other than the best interests of the Australian people and the nation. That is what motivates us. Let's make no mistake: those people in this chamber that continually clamour for extra money today are the same people that are seeking to block our economic reforms that would actually allow the pie to grow and allow us the capacity to pay off the huge debt that exists. We do have a financial problem and we are seeking to fix it—no thanks to the Greens.
