Fiona Scott, Liberal candidate for Lindsay:
I thought Julia Gillard had made it clear that her government was not in an election campaign?
The Assistant Treasurer is in question time and he's challenging me to a debate? No wonder the economy is in such poor state. He needs to concentrate a lot harder.
There will be an appropriate time, closer to the election, for a policy debate before a balanced forum and I look forward to that.
For now I wish Mr Bradbury would try to concentrate on how he can improve his performance and that of his woeful government - as he should when he's on taxpayer time.
