With yesterday’s post, we may have finished the material (for now) from Hon Ken Travers’s Second Reading speech.

Hon KATE DOUST: […] As well as dealing with this duties bill and as well as the potential of the Insurance Commission of Western Australia Amendment Bill, we have still got the Supply Bill, which is worth a substantial amount of money, to tie them over until the budget. It is like putting bandaids on everything. When I rip my stockings, I use a bit of nail varnish to hold things together. It is about constantly adding a bit of nail polish to hold the nylon together.

Hon Ken Travers: They would be running out of fingers to stick them down!

Hon KATE DOUST: They would be running out of fingers!

Hon Ken Travers: How will they count when all their fingers are stuck in the dough?

Hon KATE DOUST: Members understand what I am saying. Here, they are absolutely desperate to try to hold everything together. I used the analogy of the nail polish on the stockings because I know a number of members in this chamber would relate to that situation.

Hon Sue Ellery: Indeed; in ever increasing numbers!
