Couple of years ago I spoke from a pulpit for the first time. (Not invited back. Hmmm). Last week, I had my first Despatch Box experience - in the NSW lower house. What a room! Can't think why they have to squabble all the time, occupying one of the best rooms in the country. Occasion was a debate, organised by Andrew Botros, Expressive Engineering and facilitated by Port Stephens MP Craig Baumann, engineer. It was Architects versus Engineers and needless to say, perhaps, the engineers won by a nose. Small, turned up nose. All good clean fun.
