Senator MACDONALD (2.27 a.m.) —In the same way as Senator Robert Ray spoke to this matter, I simply want to contribute by asking the Australian Democrats why they are supporting a government that is so incompetent in its management. I cannot ask them that because they are not here, but I address my remarks to Senator Powell and Senator Chamarette. I ask them why they are going to vote with the Government on this motion when the Government has shown its absolute incompetence in running this chamber. They know of the Government's incompetence in running the country. Why would they vote for it in this motion?
