not the usual M.O.

25 May, 2010

Mr C.J. BARNETT: […] Mr Taylor has not been sacked; he is leaving from a position because of a breakdown in the relationship between him and the minister. He is continuing as a valued public servant and will assume a new senior role elsewhere in the public service.

DR G.G. JACOBS (Eyre — Minister for Water) [12.33 pm]: Mr Speaker, I thank you for the opportunity today to explain issues around Mr Taylor.

Mr R.H. Cook: Can you explain the blood on your hands?

Several members interjected.

The SPEAKER: Thank you, members!

Dr G.G. JACOBS: Mr Speaker, it is not my modus operandi to sneak up on anybody and it is not my modus operandi to use cloak and dagger methodology.

Mr E.S. Ripper: Just the dagger!
