The PRESIDENT: The Hon. Mr Hunter, could you please remove your political badge; it offends the President.
The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: Sir, just for clarity, are you suggesting to me that my badge drawing attention to the Liberal government’s privatisation of trains and trams is disorderly?
The PRESIDENT: It is disorderly and in breach of standing orders. I might have tolerated it if it said, ‘I love my President’, but it doesn’t—get it off.
The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: I will take it off, sir. I take off my badge that says the Liberal government plans to privatise trams—
The PRESIDENT: No, sit down. You have had your moment.
The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: —and trains.
The PRESIDENT: You have had your moment in the sun.
The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: And next sitting week I will wear a badge saying, ‘I love my President’.
