- Is that the sound of silence I hear?
This is part of what The Australian's website tells us:
- "About 80 protesters chanted 'democracy is dead' and 'no mandate'.
- "They included Peter Madden, who helped organise the anti-carbon tax Convoy of No Confidence in August.There were two teams of protesters, seated on each side of the lower house chamber.They stood up one group at a time to disrupt Ms Gillard as she attempted to answer a question from a Liberal MP.
- The protesters were escorted from the chamber by security guards but could still be heard as they left the public area."
