wanna be chartin’ something

27 March, 2012

Mr C.C. PORTER: […] But one very clear fact here is that the Leader of the Opposition asserts that this government has failed because crime has increased. The fact of the matter is that when we look at 2006, 2007 and 2008, and when we look at what happened when we came into government—2009, 2010 and 2011—as things presently stand, crime is lower in an overall reported sense and in every category under this government than was the case under Labor. That is the fact. Does the Leader of the Opposition want to deny that fact?

Mr M. McGowan: Pull out a chart! Let’s see a chart.

Mr C.C. PORTER: Good point—here is one I prepared earlier!

Mr M. McGowan: I knew there’d be one there.
