What do you do when it is 11.45 pm at night, and you suddenly find out you have to give a speech on a Customs bill. The MP for Tauranga did well in the circumstances!

A spirited contribution we thought at the time.
Churchillian as hell.
Dunno bout the shearing though.
Well, I suppose it was better than Hilary Calvert’s 48 second “not my favourite thing but I’m voting for it anyway” effort, and certainly better than Jonathan Coleman reading a speech delivered two years earlier on a different Bill altogether.
Why are things being done under urgency and when there is noone around to effectively debate them?
There should be a quorum for bills being passed/debated under urgency.
The level of seriousness is really slack for a bill that is supposed to be urgent.
and much better than having mad catherine singing, right toad?
or hell any of the crazy rattlings of the patchouli brigade in the greens section.
if toad wants a nuttiest speech contest hes standing with the wrong crowd if he thinks hes not going to win all of them for his barking lot.
@Stephen – presume you meant Churchillian in way Lady Astor described – if so he was missing the Churchillian response even if he had the condition.
@Trevor – just agreeing with the indomitable member’s opinion of himself in this case.
