The first thing I would say is that I once knew a guy who was in the Liberal Party party room promoting a great conservative free market agenda, but, sadly, he left us. But I feel that in more recent times that very fine senator for the great state of South Australia has been coming back closer to the bosom of the broader Liberal Party family, and I'm very pleased about that.

But, seriously, in closing my response to this question, Senator Bernardi has made a fine contribution. I very much valued his contribution inside the Liberal Party. I was disappointed when he chose to leave the Liberal Party, but, having made the decision that he has made now, I'm sure that all senators will join me in wishing Senator Bernardi all the best of success in the future. We've all enjoyed his sparring.
