Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 02 Hansard (Tuesday, 23 February 2010) . . Page.. 447 ..

MR SESELJA: Thank you, Mr Speaker, and we understand his sensitivity.

Mr Corbell: A point of order, Mr Speaker.

MR SESELJA: You are getting ridiculous. Why don’t you sit down?

MR SPEAKER: Order, Mr Seselja. It is a point of order.

MR SESELJA: Why don’t you sit down? You don’t like it, do you, Simon?

MR SPEAKER: Mr Seselja!

MR SESELJA: You have misled and you don’t like it.

Mr Corbell: Mr Speaker, you have just made a ruling that Mr Seselja needs to remain relevant.

MR SESELJA: And I had no chance to come back to it before you shot to your feet.

Mr Corbell: He has just made the comment that in some way this is because I do not like it. He was reflecting on your ruling, Mr Speaker. Mr Speaker, you ruled him to be relevant. He effectively dismissed the ruling and sought to say that you were acting in some partisan manner, Mr Speaker.

MR SESELJA: Over your head. You are looking a little bit touchy, Simon, a little bit touchy.

Mr Corbell: He is reflecting on your ruling. He is disorderly, Mr Speaker, and he needs to make his argument.

Mr Hanson: You misled the Assembly.

MR SPEAKER: Order! Thank you, Mr Corbell. I did not take Mr Seselja’s comment in the way you have suggested but I am sure Mr Seselja will follow my ruling.

Mr Hargreaves: Mr Speaker, could I ask you to reflect on the comments from Mr Hanson across the chamber, where he accused Mr Corbell of misleading the Assembly.

Mr Seselja: He admitted it.

Mr Hanson: He admitted it this morning.

MR SPEAKER: Sorry, I missed it.

Mr Hargreaves: Mr Speaker, that matter was over. Mr Hanson is reflecting on the position that has previously happened in the Assembly and its relevance today, in throwing that sort of stuff across the chamber, is that it is a reflection on the integrity of a member, and I would ask you to ask him to withdraw it.
