Senator JOYCE (QueenslandLeader of The Nationals in the Senate) (17:18): Australia, we have not got a hope. This is an absolute joke. This is where it is going to go; this is who is running the show. This is why they have guillotined it. We have to finish this by Tuesday next week because they do not have the answers. They cannot answer the first question. This nation is heading towards an absolute fiasco. That stunned silence, Australia, is you looking for an answer. It is absurd, it is a travesty, it is a fiasco and it is disgusting. I do not know why we are doing to our country. There is absolutely zero competency on the other side. They do not have a clue what they are doing. They are dragging us down this path. You can pick anywhere in this legislation and they will not have a clue what is going on with it.
