Warren Truss caught out by the orchestra pit and Albo wins conductor's prize
''There is significant road projects under way or announced and about
to begin for those areas,'' Truss said. ''Let's look at projects like
the Koonda Hot spur road, the Great Ocean Road, the Princes Highway
west and the Western Highway … the Australian Government has committed
$6.5 billion …''
At which point Albo - who under the previous government used
to be a one-man question time morale boosting machine - sprang to the
dispatch box, to the visible pleasure of his colleagues.
''He needs to indicate a single project in Victoria that has begun under his watch!'' he cried.
The Labor backbench chanted ''Just one! Just one!'' Everyone
began to shout. Speaker Bronwyn Bishop ejected Albanese and opposition
education spokeswoman Kate Ellis from the chamber.
