Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 9 Hansard (12 August) . .
Those who will not reason are bigots—
there is no reason being presented here today—
those who cannot are fools—
they have not taken the opportunity—
and those who dare not, are slaves.
We see a Labor Party and the Greens that are slaves to the CFMEU. Today, members, is your chance to vote against xenophobia. Now is your chance to vote against bullyboy tactics. Now is your chance to vote against the lies they promulgate. Now is your chance to vote against the most base of politics. Now is your chance to vote against the old ways. Now is your chance to vote for a stronger economic future not just for Canberra but for the country. Now is your chance to vote for those additional Australian jobs—8,000 next year and 15,000 in the long term. Now is your chance to vote for a closer relationship with China, our largest market. Now is your chance to vote for the ACT economy. Now is your chance to vote and show some leadership. Disavow yourself of these people; disavow yourself of this campaign. Vote for this motion.
That the motion be agreed to.
