keep yourself warm

Hon DARREN WEST: […] I will be most surprised if the Nationals walk out on the Karratha community, because the National Party has expended a lot of energy and money in winning over the Karratha community to win the seat of Pilbara. Good luck to them. But let us see whether it will stick by those people now that it has the votes or will we see the usual—

Hon Ken Travers: Like it did to the wheatbelt community.

Hon DARREN WEST: Just like it did to the wheatbelt community. Thank you very much for the votes but goodbye, we are off somewhere else because we have other people more important than you.

Hon Helen Morton: Why not just turn around and have a little knitting circle over there.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Hon Simon O’Brien): Order! We have gone from startled gazelles to knitting circles, but what we are actually on is the Electricity Corporations Amendment Bill 2013 and Hon Darren West is telling us why it should or should not be read a second time.

Hon DARREN WEST: In a brief response to the minister, it sounds like a great idea, but I would need to learn to knit. If the minister has any knitting tips, I would be pleased to hear them. My grandmother was an avid knitter and used to knit several garments, so there was no real need for me to learn. I will go back to the bill at hand. As Hon Ken Travers has pointed out, the Nationals have walked out on the wheatbelt community.

Hon Ken Travers: The way electricity prices are going the member may need to learn to knit again for those cold winter nights.

Hon DARREN WEST: A scarf for those cold winter nights when we cannot afford to put on a heater.
