MR SMYTH: Mr Corbell, you stood there for 10 minutes and you did not put a single fact on the table.
Mr Corbell: Which planning policies, Brendan?
MR SMYTH: You babbled for 10 minutes. Go to the UDIA report. They will tell you. They outline it quite succinctly.
Mr Corbell: No, no. You are making the argument, Brendan. Which planning policies?
MR SMYTH: Yes, and I am making it very well—that Mr Corbell as the minister single-handedly destroyed homeownership in the ACT.
Mr Corbell: You know it so well that you cannot tell me.
MR SMYTH: We do know it so well.
Mr Seselja: You hit a nerve.
MR SMYTH: The nervous tic, the twitch, is there.
Mr Seselja: Because he knows; he knows he is responsible.
MR SMYTH: Yes. The colour is up; you can see it, Mr Speaker.
Mr Seselja: Deep down you know.
Mr Corbell: I do not like liars very much.
MR SMYTH: The assistant planning minister came down to criticise his junior, to make sure that people knew he still knew more about planning than the current planning minister does—
Mr Seselja: Who are you referring to, Simon?
Mr Corbell: I am referring to you, Mr Seselja.
MR SMYTH: He is caught out, Mr Speaker.
Mr Seselja: Point of order, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: Order, Mr Smyth!
Mr Seselja: We know that Mr Corbell is very, very sensitive, but calling me and presumably Mr Smyth liars is unacceptable. I would ask him to withdraw.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Corbell?
