everybody’s jumpin’

18 August, 2010

MR P. PAPALIA (Warnbro) [7.43 pm]: I rise to speak on the Iron Ore Agreements Legislation Amendment Bill 2010. At the risk of covering ground that just about every member who has spoken has already covered, I want to focus on some concerns I have on the two shadow portfolios I hold. I admire the Premier’s stamina and appreciate the fact that he is in the house tonight. It is a tiring job. I have always admired the people who fill the role of Premier.

Mr C.J. Barnett: It’s only the first day of the session.

Mr P. PAPALIA: I know. I am sure that the Premier was busy during the recess and he is now feeling very weary, particularly after all the callisthenics he was doing earlier today, captured in living colour on Channel Seven.

Mr M. McGowan: It was almost a star jump. The Premier’s aged a bit since the star jump; he can’t quite get there any more.

Mr P. PAPALIA: That is right. At least the viewers could not see his legs going. It is a good thing that the Premier is here to listen to these contributions.
