So I think we have established one thing here, and that is that the Leader of the Greens has done a deal with the Liberal Party that about equates to a woman that is in her first trimester of pregnancy—because you have done about 30 per cent of a deal. You have done a crappy deal for Australians out there today and you should be ashamed of yourself. I can tell you what: I would like to see what Christine Milne has to say about this. This was her baby, and I will tell you what: you just blew it out of the water, babe! That is it. I will tell you that now.

The other thing that I have a problem with is that, when it comes to the upper house and the lower house in parliament, it is not run by parliamentarians. That has been made very loud and clear here this evening. These laws and their regulations are made by their political donors in here. So—through the chair—Senator Cormann, you will have no problem helping me call for a royal commission on political donations in the future.
