the democratic circus

23 March, 2010

MRS C.A. MARTIN (Kimberley) [7.29 pm]: […] Then of course we look at Oakajee. We say we are not spending any money on it but there is a line item here, is there not? Maybe I should get my eyes tested! I am sure it says “Oakajee Rail and Port Project—$7.360 million”. There is a line item. Anyway, that is a “no deal” because there is not enough information to make a decision. You guys are meant to be in government to give information, are you not, so that we can make informed decisions to support good government policy? But if we do not get the information, we cannot make informed decisions. No deal. What is the next one?

Mr R.F. Johnson: You’ve got to go “no deal”.

Mrs C.A. MARTIN: Back off! I am not here to entertain the minister. This is very serious. It is no deal. Of
course we also have here the Browse project. It is a great project. Maybe we did not think it was going to come
online this year. We have been waiting 47 years or something like that.

Mr R.F. Johnson: Is that all?

Mrs C.A. MARTIN: Back off! I do not see any information here about the Ord. That is because the federal government has paid for it!

Mr R.F. Johnson: Has it?

Mrs C.A. MARTIN: Yes, most of it. I am really crabby because the Treasurer is not here to answer a couple of really simple questions.
