long way to go

3 May, 2010

HON NORMAN MOORE (Mining and Pastoral — Leader of the House) [11.24 am]: […] When we think about how long it takes to travel by bus from Broome to Perth compared with how long it takes to travel by plane, we can understand why people would much prefer to travel by plane. It is a very long journey. I can remember taking the bus once myself from Carnarvon to Perth overnight. It was not something that I much appreciated at the time, and I do not make a habit of doing it if I can help it.

Hon Ken Travers: Which was more enjoyable—the bus trip or sitting in Parliament?

Hon NORMAN MOORE: The bus trip by a mile. It was far and away more enjoyable. The interesting thing is that on both occasions people were asleep!
