Labor Members of Parliament
The Hon. D.W. RIDGWAY (Leader of the Opposition) (22:59): I rise to make a few comments on the motion moved by the Hon. Rob Lucas:
That this council notes with concern the actions taken by Labor MPs and statements made by Labor MPs both inside and outside the parliament.
Most people would know me in this place as being pretty easy going, not being offended very often and pretty much letting things roll with the punches and getting on with the business of being a member of parliament. However, one action that I need to make some comment about has been the total denial of the member for Elder for her involvement and her understanding of the 'You can't trust Habib' flyer, and the disgraceful attack by the South Australian branch of the Labor Party on Caroline Habib at the last election in the electorate of Elder. Ms Annabel Digance, the member for Elder, often says, 'Oh, I didn't know anything about it'. Well, she has never said that to me, but she has said it to other people: 'I didn't know anything about it'.
