Malinauskas, next Member for Croydon
The Hon. D.W. RIDGWAY (Leader of the Opposition) ( 15:32 ): I rise today to speak about the Hon. Mr Peter Malinauskas, who must wake up every day and count his lucky stars. This man has never had to work hard in life to get where he is. On 1 December 2015, the member was gifted a seat in this place by the faceless men who control the Labor Party. It must be nice to be spoonfed and not have to break into a sweat, to go from the cushy job of secretary to the SDA to be handed a seat in parliament on a silver platter. He said at one stage that a seat in parliament had never been further from his mind.
