cutting remarks

26 January, 2009

Mr M.W. TRENORDEN: I raised this matter in my speech during the second reading debate, and again my view is probably in the minority in this place. This whole proposed section is nonsense. Members would know, if they thought about these things logically, that a person can be booked by a booze bus for having a blood alcohol concentration level of .08 per cent or over, but that most people who are .08 or over are not so visibly drunk that a staff member of a hotel would not serve them. Any member who has spent too much time in bars, as I have, would know –

Mr M.J. Cowper interjected.

Mr M.W. TRENORDEN: The member for Murray might have been in other bars. Someone with a haircut like his might be on the other side of the bar! I am talking about the same sort of haircut! The member for Murray and I obviously share a common barber!

Mr R.C. Kucera: You should see the bloke who cut it!

Mr M.W. TRENORDEN: I tried to sue him!

Mr M.J. Cowper: Like you, I am usually on the other side of the bar like that!

Mr M.W. TRENORDEN: That is right.
