Wow! What was that? I've never heard anything so extraordinary, not even from this lot previously. We've had fake crocodile tears all week in this place around superannuation. They're going to go to war for anyone who has $3-plus million in their superannuation. They're going to fight for those people.

Yes, they have been successful, but they need the opposition to keep fighting day in, day out for them because they've got it so tough. What about the majority of Australians, who don't have $3-plus million in their superannuation? I'm all for people paying their fair share, but I do want to take the—I was going to say 'good senator' but I'm probably exaggerating there!—contribution of the senator before, Senator Hughes. Again, she was in here talking about her poor performance when it comes to the Premier of Victoria, Dan Andrews. I can remember her crying, from the rafters almost, about how Mr Andrews was going to get voted out of parliament. His government was gone because he locked everyone up during COVID.
