the other plan

With reports that the W.A. Treasurer and Attorney General, Christian Porter, is to resign his portfolios today, with a view to running for pre-selection for the next Federal election, we return to 2008, when Mr. Porter had made his inaugural speech in the Legislative Assembly (unaccompanied by any graphs or charts?):

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: I heard a very good first speech today from a new member of Parliament. What I would suggest to the opposition is that it just make Mr Porter the leader now and save time.

Mr C.C. Porter: Is that supposed to be being nice to me?

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: Yes. It was a very good speech; I congratulate the member sincerely.

Several members interjected.

The SPEAKER: Order, members!

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: It was a mature, well-thought-through speech and showed a considerable amount of promise.

Several members interjected.

The SPEAKER: Order, members!

Mr A.J. CARPENTER: My suggestion to the state Liberal Party would be to circumvent the obvious and install the new member into the leadership now.
