Commonwealth Electoral Amendment Bill 2016; In Committee
Protect me, please, Chair! Protect me, please! I am being savaged by a very flaccid attack by the Labor Party on my right flank! That is a word not many men like to hear, but that 'flaccid' word is very, very powerful when it is used in the right context. I am interested in getting on with the substantive debate. There is a lot to debate. There is a lot of detail we need to get through. I ask the Labor Party to deal with the amendment before the chair. Put the politics aside, and let us get on with this.
