across a crowded room

2 February, 2009

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: […] How many regional police stations have been opened since we came to government compared with the number that were opened during the time that the Liberal and National Parties were in government?

Mr P.D. Omodei interjected.

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: The Leader of the Opposition was a minister in the coalition government. A former coalition police minister is in the chamber. He is avoiding eye contact and keeping very quiet.

Mr J.H.D. Day: I was doing something more productive! Look at me!

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: The member for Darling Range is a good man! I hate to admit this –

Several members interjected.

THE SPEAKER (Mr F. Riebeling): I think we should avoid eye contact!

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: Ever since the member for Darling Range’s university days, I have taken a perverse delight in looking at him! He used to be a very attractive young man!

Mr R.F. Johnson interjected.

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: It is a free society.
