MR DOSZPOT: Thank you, Madam Deputy Chair. I thank Mr Gentleman for his absolutely critical interjection. He has not said boo about any of the issues even though it comes across his portfolio. Yet the mere fact that I addressed Mr Rattenbury incorrectly is obviously such a huge issue. I apologise, Madam Deputy Speaker, and I am talking through you. Mr Rattenbury, through you, Madam Deputy Speaker, if ever there was an opportunity for you to have a look at the amendments you put in and back your own amendments, this was it. Again, Mr Rattenbury has proven how little we can trust his words. As Mr Hanson pointed out, we have got to stop being so trusting when we get information from our Greens colleague, who will always stick with government, regardless of what the community wants.
