It is difficult enough to have to listen to this, but every single word is from a written speech which, as you know, is contrary to standing orders. I ask you to bring the senator in line with the standing orders and to not read the speech entirely—even the jokes.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR: Senator Macdonald, there is quite a tolerance here with respect to the process of referring to a written speech. Senator Lambie, please continue.
