big business

27 September, 2012

Mr J.N. HYDE: […] One of the successful projects being funded is the Boyup Brook regional centre for country music, which is a really, really good project. Having attended a number of Boyup Brook country music festivals —

Mr R.H. Cook: You are committed to your portfolio, aren’t you?

Mr J.N. HYDE: I am—this was before politics.

Mr D.A. Templeman: Is that when you used to sell those icy things?

Mr J.N. HYDE: The shaved ice it was. I remember that Adam Brand came up at Boyup Brook —

Mr D.A. Templeman: You made quite a lot of money on the shaved ice, didn’t you? Enough to put into the future fund anyway!

Mr J.N. HYDE: I actually am one of the few people on this side who has a small business background and had to rely on, like the member for Swan Hills, the dollar bills—the cold hard cash coming over the counter into the cash register. When I was selling ice, it was very wet; it was cold, cold cash I was dealing with! It is thirsty business at country music festivals in the summer, and, member for Mandurah, they did like to buy beautiful shaved ice—GM-free it was, too.

Dr K.D. Hames: Your time is going awfully slowly.
