(upper) house of fun

30 August, 2012

Hon MIA DAVIES: […] I look forward to Hon Ken Travers, as spokesperson for transport, putting some dollars against this passion and commitment that he has suddenly found for the people of the wheatbelt and tier 3 rail, because I do not think that Hon Ken Travers has actually done any of the practical things that need to be done to find a solution to this problem.

Hon Simon O’Brien: He’s having a quick Twitter!

Hon MIA DAVIES: I can see that, Hon Simon O’Brien. The member spends a lot of time on Twitter; I have noticed!

Hon Simon O’Brien: Do you know why he Twitters?

A government member: He’s a twit!

Hon Ken Travers: How long did it take you to get that one!

The DEPUTY CHAIR: Order, members!

Several members interjected.

The DEPUTY CHAIR: Order, members! This is not a place of fun; this is the Parliament.

Date: 22 August 2012
