If this Prime Minister really respected the Australian people, he would not have bought their votes with his corrupt sports rorts scheme. Let's call a spade a shovel here. This corrupt government bought votes in marginal seats with their colour coded spreadsheets and their corrupt sports rorts scheme, and they voted against accountability of Minister McKenzie—no, sorry, Senator McKenzie—fronting up to the sports rorts committee. So don't talk to us about your bloody respect, Prime Minister. Don't talk to us about it.

This legislation should go back. We should insist upon this amendment because it is the right thing to do, and the Prime Minister should respect the will of this Senate.
