“I will take over the portfolio of Correctional Services later today.”
NT Chief Minister, Adam Giles, 26 July 2016.
“I would love to be the Corrections minister. It is not the portfolio I really aspire to but, if I was the prisons minister, I would build a big concrete hole and put all the bad criminals in there: ‘Right, you are in the hole, you are not coming out. Start learning about it’. I might break every United Nations’ convention on the rights of the prisoner but, ‘Get in the hole’.”
Adam Giles MLA, NT Legislative Assembly Hansard October 20, 2010.
