Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 10 Hansard (Thursday, 23 September 2010) . . Page.. 4410 ..

You had to get this information out of those opposite with a crowbar. What has happened is that this minister has put everything she knows on the table with such honesty that those people opposite are not fit to stand in her shadow, Madam Deputy Speaker.

MR HANSON (Molonglo) (11.10): Before I attend to Ms Bresnan’s amendment, I must say that I am glad I am really getting under your skin, Johnno, with that speech. If I knew that it was really causing those opposite—

Mr Hargreaves: Never in your life, mate! You are not man enough. You are not man enough even if you could photocopy yourself.

MR HANSON: Madam Deputy Speaker—

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Resume your seat, Mr Hargreaves.

Mr Hargreaves: You want protection from the chair, do you?

MR HANSON: I am not sure. I am quite happy talking.


Mr Hargreaves: A man of your thuggery should not need it.


Mr Hargreaves: Yes ma’am.

MR HANSON: What particular aspects of my speech bother you, Johnno? Is it the quotes from—

Mr Hargreaves: No. It was the lack of truth.


MR HANSON: Is it the quotes from Mr Stanhope? Is it the one that says:

Because integrity is one of our core values, we do not accept that the only way to govern is by deals done behind closed doors.

Mr Hargreaves: No, we’ve got it and you don’t.

Mrs Dunne: Point of order, Madam Assistant Speaker—

Mr Seselja: Could we stop the clock?

Mrs Dunne: Could I ask you to ask Mr Hargreaves to withdraw his comment that he was concerned about Mr Hanson’s lack of truth? It is unparliamentary.
