finger back

7 February, 2014

Hon GEORGE CASH: […] I said before that the building dissent and undercurrent of dissatisfaction in the community is fuelled by a lot of little things. One of those things is that country Western Australia is entitled to believe that it was discriminated against. The Government tried to buy off metropolitan Perth by giving children free admission to the Perth Royal Show, but that is the same as saying to country Western Australia, “Here’s Dr Gallop’s finger – stick it up your nose!” People do not like it and take offence.

Hon Dee Margetts: I was a bit worried there for a second.

Hon GEORGE CASH: I am trying to be reasonably decent about this issue. I would have assumed that they would be sticking it up their noses. Some people might have thought that it might have got stuck somewhere else, such as in their ears – who knows.
