Some of them are over two years old.More Button

The Bill gives us a chance to go through the famous book that will become a millstone for this nation in the next ten years, namely, Building on Reality. It would have been better named if it were ca...More Button

No matter how hard Senators opposite try to hide the fact, what I have been saying is the truth. I agree that the volume is up——More Button

I agree it is the safer way. I did not behave in the same way when other Senators were speaking. Particularly, I did not interrupt Senator McDonald. The Minister said that the Government had signifi...More Button

I did not mention anybody by name.More Button
