the call of the wild

Mr E.S. RIPPER: […] I am sure that the Minister for Health would like to achieve every hospital promise and more. The question is whether he will be allowed to do so by the Premier and the Treasurer.

Mr C.J. Barnett: Can I ask you a question?

Mr E.S. RIPPER: No, I am asking questions of the Premier today, and I will allow him an interjection in due course.

Mr C.J. Barnett: I’m going to make a phone call.

Mr E.S. RIPPER: The Premier is going to take a phone call. He is going to walk out of the chamber during an MPI and take a phone call. What petulance! What an amazing performance from the Premier.

Mr J.N. Hyde: He spat the dummy!

Mr E.S. RIPPER: He has spat the dummy. Did the member for Perth catch it? Did it arrive over there, or did it hit the stained glass windows behind us? What an appalling performance!
