Mr ALBANESE (1:45 PM) —Last week, unfortunately, in Illawarra Road, Marrickville, around the corner from my electorate office, there was a shooting which resulted in the death of a young man. I wish to send condolences from me and the community to that young man's family.

I also wish to place on record my outrage at Kerry Chikarovski's comment that, `You can't go shopping in Marrickville these days without the risk of being shot.' This ignorant, failed leader from the North Shore of Sydney should stay there. My local community are outraged at the slur which has been placed upon them. Marrickville is a community of battlers, it is true. It is made up of people who have come from different places around the world to make it their home and they have done their best to build up the community. The Marrickville chamber of commerce, the main street committee and Marrickville Municipal Council have all put an enormous amount of effort into building up that local shopping centre and making it a place which is enjoyable to go to and a place in which I am proud to live and have my electorate office. The slur put by this member for Lane Cove shows just how failed she is. This is a leader of the opposition who, on a law and order issue, stuffs it up.

Mr SPEAKER —Order! The honourable member's time has expired.

Mr ALBANESE —She should be put out of her misery as leader.

Mr SPEAKER —Member for Grayndler!
