Mr T.R. BUSWELL: The member for Collie–Preston may call me a baby whale—some people would be offended by that in this place. If some members were standing and the member for Collie–Preston called them whales or overweight, they may be offended. I put up with that a lot and I will probably continue to.

Several members interjected.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: I just make the point to the member for Collie–Preston that some people would be offended by those sorts of comments.

Mr F.M. Logan: But you dish it out, so you don’t mind.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: I am not; I am simply pointing out that some people would be offended. If some members in this place were standing and we started calling them whales, they would be offended. Personally, I am not offended.

Several members interjected.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: No! My body is my tool—temple!

Several members interjected.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: Anyway, back to the debate and where I was before the member for Collie–Preston rudely interrupted my train of thought.

Several members interjected.

The SPEAKER: Back to the bill, please.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: Back to the bill, Mr Speaker. Of course, I am assuming the member for Collie–Preston meant a killer whale—an orca!

Several members interjected.

The SPEAKER: We have had a little fun; can we get back to the bill.
