i don’t want to play football

11 February, 2010

Mr HALE (Solomon) (4.02 pm)— Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The SPEAKER— Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr HALE— Most grievously.

The SPEAKER— Please proceed.

Mr HALE— This morning we had a game of soccer down on the Senate field, between the staff and the MPs. It was played in good spirit. The staff won the game of soccer 3-2. Since then there has been an email circulating around—and it was not Grech who sent it—saying that I happened to be the worst player on the ground. I can categorically say that the member for Dobell, the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and the Member for Moreton were certainly worse than me on the day.

The SPEAKER— Having got to that point, I am not giving equal time to those mentioned!
