we oughta be ashamed

15 October, 2009

Mr J.C. KOBELKE: […] The Attorney General is the government’s key law officer. He went public, on the record, to say that we did not need this amendment to have “bush” caught as “property” and that we need to go back and perhaps challenge these decisions through a higher court. Clearly the minister has convinced the Attorney General. I do not know what means he used to change his view. He is a man of great persuasion.

Mr R.F. Johnson: I am very persuasive, other than with you lot!

Mr J.C. KOBELKE: I was doing all right until the minister said all those very nice things about me and that really hurt my reputation!

Mr C.J. Barnett: I would have taken a point of order if I had been here!

Mr J.C. KOBELKE: I thought I would do that myself, but I was a bit too embarrassed to do that!
