Seven years ago today, in the W.A. Legislative Assembly (Ms Quirk’s retort here may be a familiar line to regular visitors to the W.A. State Library – or maybe it’s just us who think it every time):

Ms S.E. WALKER: […] I tried to find the “McGinty broke the law: Barnett” article, but it has been taken off the Parliamentary Library web site!

Mr J.A. McGinty: Isn’t that good?

Ms S.E. WALKER: Is that not strange? What happened to it? I can find the one which two days later stated “McGinty in clear: lawyer”, but I cannot find the article with the alleged defamatory headline. What happened to that? Can the Attorney General cast any light on that matter? He did not go for the money, but something funny happened. It is not on the media clips in the Parliamentary Library. We still have the Battye Library; I can still dig it up.

Ms M.M. Quirk: You’re the batty library.

Ms S.E. WALKER: I was not talking about the member for Girrawheen, although I should have been!
