    Greens leader Christine Milne said: "Who in the 21st century would say the environment is meant for man and not just the other way around?
    "There is no economic future for Australia in trashing our precious native forests and national parks ... In pandering to the forestry industry the Prime Minister's statements last night reveal he's not only anti-environment and anti-conservation, he's anti-jobs."

    Mr TURNBULL:
    There are some limitations to telehealth services. There are some conditions that are arguably incurable and inaccessible. Take Conrovianism. Conrovianism is a very pernicious problem. It has devastating symptoms.
    Ms Rishworth interjecting

    The SPEAKER:
    The member for Kingston!

    Mr Dreyfus:
    Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order: relevance.

    The SPEAKER:
    There is no point of order. I call the Minister for Communications.

    Mr TURNBULL:
    One of the symptoms of Conrovianism is a denial of reality and delusions of grandeur, and imagining oneself to be a movie character. The member for Isaacs, for example, does not know—

    Mr Albanese:
    Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order. The member for Wentworth talking about delusions of grandeur is out of order because it is against the standing order on irony.

    The SPEAKER:
    If the member for Grayndler tries that again, he will be out immediately.

    Mr TURNBULL:
    The symptoms of this condition include loss of hearing, denial of reality, shouting abuse at unpredictable moments and lack of empathy for people on lower incomes—hence, those afflicted by Conrovianism don't care that they were going to put the cost of broadband up by 80 per cent, $43 a month.
    Ms Rishworth interjecting

    The SPEAKER:
    The member for Kingston will remove herself under 94(a).
    The member for Kingston then left the chamber.

    Mr TURNBULL:
    Madam Speaker, could I have the clock back a bit? We lost a bit of time then.
    Honourable members interjecting—

    Mr TURNBULL:
    Madam Speaker, it is very hard to be heard. Seriously, this syndrome is—

    The SPEAKER:
    If we have another outbreak like that, there will be several who will be removed immediately.

    Mr TURNBULL:
    There may be no cure for Conrovianism for those who suffer from it—as we have seen today—but one of the virtues of the coalition's broadband policy is that it will at least stop the spread of Conrovianism. We commit to stopping its spread and to ensuring that in the future broadband policy is governed competently and prudently.
    Even Shorten had a good chuckle

    ftr I think its a bit of a joke his article isn't allowed to be published, particularly as they've now become one of the key points in the 18c debate and a lot of people haven't even read it

    Yeah but it's not just an opinion piece, it contains factual errors which damage the parties involved. It is absolutely not a freedom of speech issue.

    18c.

    IPA not happy with Brandis ftr, reckon he's bracktracking since he's talking about removing 18c and inserting an anti-racial vilification law in its place. Apparently they'd rather 18c stay if that were the case.

    Right-wing think tank IPA says George Brandis is backtracking on race hate laws

    The IPA seems stunned that someone other than the IPA might lobby a minister and get a positive response.
