can’t slow down

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: […] I was very interested to hear the Premier’s outburst then. I am glad he enjoyed the Lionel Richie concert last night. The Premier had a go at us this morning about pairs. The Premier told me that he was attending a function.

Mr C.J. Barnett: I did.

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: Did the Premier meet with Lionel?

Mr C.J. Barnett: Yes.

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: What did he have to say? Did the Premier dance on the ceiling with him?

Mr C.J. Barnett: My wife did!

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: Were you there all night long? But I bet he is stuck on you!


Our job is to be accountable—yet the Premier can go away to attend a function! From now on I will be looking at the Premier’s pair requests very carefully! I will be checking the gig guide first to see what is on on the same night!

Mr M.J. Cowper: So there is no endless love?

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: There will be no endless love from this side, penny lover! The fact of the matter is —

Mr P. Papalia: Hello!

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: Hello, is it me you’re looking for? I was looking for the Premier last night! We had a division, and I said, “Where is the Premier?”, and I was told he is attending an official function—6.00 pm to rise! I wondered why he was looking a bit tired this morning; he was dancing on the ceiling!

Mr C.J. Barnett: It was a great show!

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: What happens? While some of us regional members have to sit here day in and day out while everyone else can dance on the ceiling and do wonderful things —

Mr M.J. Cowper: Member —

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: What is wrong with you?

Mr M.J. Cowper: Say you, say me—we go home!

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: We have done that on a number of occasions, have we not! There is an endless love between you and me!

Mr M.J. Cowper: Sshh!

Mr D.A. TEMPLEMAN: There is!
