bang goes the knighthood

8 September, 2011

Hon KATE DOUST: […] But we have questions about this legislation. The parliamentary secretary is very diligent. I am sure that she will come back to us with fulsome answers about this legislation, because she is keen to make sure that this is good legislation, and that this event goes off — I was not going to say with a bang —

Hon Adele Farina: That would be a problematic statement!

Hon KATE DOUST: I know!

Hon Giz Watson: We used to be able to make jokes like that!

Hon KATE DOUST: Yes. That is the difficulty. We cannot make jokes like that any more, because people may take it the wrong way.
