Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 14 Hansard (Wednesday, 8 December 2010) . . Page.. 6002 ..


silly little buggers? That is not professional. And have you spent your time doing media stunts, talking about barista courses, having the media out there from time to time to have a look at the garden and, at the same time, done nothing about the fact that there was not a sport and rec officer for months at a time and that most of the sport and rec facilities could not be used”?

These kids are bored. They are bored because they do not have decent education facilities. Although they have outstanding recreational facilities, they cannot use them because there is no sport and rec officer or there has not been for months. And when they are bored, they get locked up. They get more bored and they cause trouble and they beat people up because there are not enough staff there to ensure that they do not get beaten up.

The Labor Party and the Greens have colluded today to ensure that we do not get the best inquiry for these people and that we will not get the best outcome. It is a shame on them. They all say they are interested in the outcomes of the young people but they have let them down today.
