Hon SALLY TALBOT: […] There is a very famous line in one of the first episodes of The West Wing around 1999 when one of the characters says, “There are two things in the world you never want to let people see how you make ’em—laws and sausages.” I have to say that line came to mind when I took a look at this bill to re-merge Verve Energy and Synergy. I have to say, Mr President, as you probably very well know coming from Margaret River as you do, that sausages have come an awful long way since 1999. I am sure that you wander into your local butcher shop regularly and see things like chicken and ricotta sausages and lamb and rosemary sausages.

The PRESIDENT: Member, I just remind you that the Margaret River Gourmet Escape was on last weekend, which had gourmet sausages!

Hon SALLY TALBOT: There you go, Mr President. You yourself can bear personal witness to the fact that sausages have come a long way since 1999!
