*Labor Senator Sue Mackay, my Shadow, issued a press release on 30 August 2000 asking whether I lived in Ayr or Townsville (or Rockhampton or Cairns) after she became confused about where I was based. Poor soul never quite understood that a Coalition Senator just doesn’t sit in an office waiting for people to call!
