a series of sneaks

30 January, 2012

Sneakers” is not the only nickname to have featured here – following the 2008 WA State election, Colin Barnett was referred to as the ‘Emperor’, while McGowan has also been described (by Barnett) as ‘Wonder Boy‘ – and no doubt we’ll explore these, and others, further at a later date…

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: […] I do not think the member is silly. In fact, I am surprised that the member’s name was not on that list that we saw at the weekend. I am very surprised that we did not see her name on that list. I know that the member should be on the list, because she is more credible than certainly the member for Mindarie, for instance, and she knows a lot more about law and order. So I am surprised. I think the member would be more acceptable as a possible future leader. I know that the member talked to the Leader of the Opposition and urged him to keep the member for Mindarie out of her affairs; but unfortunately he does not understand plain and simple English —

Mr M. McGowan: Answer the question! You’re being asked about a serious matter—drink and drug-driving.

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: It certainly is. The member for Rockingham did nothing about that when he was in government; nothing whatsoever. He was a useless minister, and that is why they called him “Sneakers”!

Mr M. McGowan: That is why they call you idiot!

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: Yeah! Okay!
