This was actually the Labor Party position. Nobody in Australia believes that you're taking a principled stand on this. Everybody knows that you are putting populist politics ahead of the national interest, and in history you will stand condemned for it. If this goes down today, there is no doubt that the Australian parliament will have to revisit this before long in order to protect our economic security into the future. On that basis, I commend the bill to the Senate.
