Mr KEOGH (Burt) (13:28): We've already heard in this debate particularly from the member for Melbourne, who has demonstrated why you can never trust the Greens on the economy or, in fact, to do anything really for the benefit of ordinary Australians. But then we heard from the member for Fairfax, who was railing against neo-Marxism when the irony is that the main proponent of Marxist ideology in this parliament sits behind him. The member for Warringah is proposing the nationalisation of the means of production, wanting the government to buy a coal-fired power station that is actually going to close. Not only does he want to own the asset; he wants to own assets that will be worthless. And the member for Fairfax can't even take it. He's walked out of the chamber because he can't accept that the only proponents of Marxism in this house are actually on that side of the chamber. The hypocrisy that we have coming out of here is amazing.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Mr Rob Mitchell ): The debate is interrupted in accordance with standing order 43. The debate will be resumed at a later hour.
