Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: […] The Premier has put on the public record that although he may be considering going down this path, he would in fact do it with reluctance. He made that comment on 28 May 2009 when he said, as recorded in Hansard —

It would be with reluctance that I would restrict in any way the FOI laws.

I just hope that he has the good judgement to not in fact restrict those laws. In the Hansard of 7 April 2009, the
Premier is quoted as saying —

We cannot keep up with Hon Ljiljanna Ravlich, who asks about 50 questions a day, …

He may not like having that level of scrutiny or accountability, but I think it goes with the territory.

Hon Simon O’Brien: It’s just gossip; that’s all.

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: I will tell members opposite something. I have actually found a new hobby. I like writing questions. I love it.

Hon Simon O’Brien: You really need to get a life. Do you know that?

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: I cannot stop myself; I think, “What will I do? Will I go out and socialise? Will I tend the garden? Will I bake a cake?”

Hon Ed Dermer: Is it because the government is so questionable that you feel compelled?

Hon LJILJANNA RAVLICH: I just get this urge; I think, “Scrabble? No! Cards? No!” Game of choice: writing questions. I just love writing questions. I have developed a real passion for it and it suits the job perfectly.
