MR HANSON: We sometimes wonder, when we see what is happening in New South Wales, what those Labor values are. What I hear from those voters is this: “I simply don’t understand how during the election when you had the Liberal Party and the Labor Party talking about good service delivery, economic management and so on that we have ended up in a position where we now have a government that is a combination of Green and Labor that is rolling out an unaffordable agenda that is not something that I voted for.” They do not understand that.

Katy Gallagher in this place over the last couple of days has been making much of her electoral position. We have seen much arrogance and hubris from those opposite. They say, “We won this election, we won the last election and we’ll win the next one.” Well, she needs to be very careful because out there in the community that is not the message I am hearing. What I am hearing is that the people that essentially won this election are the Greens. When you look at the agenda that has been rolled out, it does not reflect the will of many Labor voters. It certainly does not reflect the will of many Liberal voters and it does not reflect the will of the majority of Canberrans. What we are seeing is a narrow agenda that is going to cost the residents of the ACT for years to come.
