Hon KATE DOUST: […] My colleague in the other chamber began her speech by referring to a quote from The Mikado. I do not have oldfashioned musical tastes as she does. But I was thinking this morning that the best song that we could pick for this legislation is a song that Hon Sue Ellery tells me was originally a Beatles song —

Hon Giz Watson: “Baby you can drive my car”!

Hon KATE DOUST: Yes, “Baby you can drive my car”! That was actually a song by Fine Young Cannibals. It was a great song. What this legislation says is, “No, baby, you can’t drive my car; it’s going to be impounded”!

Hon Giz Watson: Or, “You can drive my car slowly”!

Hon KATE DOUST: Yes—slowly and carefully, I think.

I was trying to think of the right song, and that was the first one that came to mind—not the Beatles’ version but the Fine Young Cannibals’ version
