Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 10 Hansard (30 August) . . Page.. 3901 ..

MR MOORE (continuing):

Mr Speaker, there is one group that as a community we did not acknowledge, and I think it could be because we have a strange symbiotic relationship with them. I think members would join with me in acknowledging the media and the incredibly hard work they put in. Sometimes they frustrate us like hell. Sometimes they drive us crazy. We think we are being treated unfairly. Sometimes we think, "Well, that wasn't too bad," and sometimes we think, "Well, we've done very well." Overall I think all of us might like to recognise the contribution that they make. We know that each and every one of them also does what they can in terms of our democracy to try to make sure that they deliver, expose and so on, so I ask members to join me in acknowledging them.

Mr Speaker, in the 12 years that I have spent here I have had an overwhelming sense of pride in being in this Assembly. Each and every one of us should be extraordinarily proud of serving in the ACT legislature. It is something you ought to be proud of. I will be proud of it for the rest of my life.

Members, farewell.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Assembly adjourned at 12.07 am (Friday) to a date and hour to be fixed.
