You have disgraced yourselves again
•G'day from Australia, Mr Noonan,
Reading the diabolical utterings from you and your party colleagues in Government, I don't know if I should scorn your palaver; or cry in despair at you and your colleagues' apparent ignorance of the Constitution and of what a government is entitled to legislate for.
A political party behaving as you have since March clearly had no plan of action to implement when you assumed government. The fact is that the State was in a healthy financial situation prior to the decision by the last government to give an open-ended guarantee to the banks for private debt.
