“Mr Hodgman’s conduct in acting out a simulated sexual act in here was the most juvenile and disgraceful and immature and offensive thing I have seen in here Mr Speaker.”

Tasmanian Labor backbencher Brenton Best explains why he rejected Opposition Leader Will Hodgman’s apology for making a rude gesture to a rival MP.  Best put his fingers in his ears and said, “I’m not listening, I’m not listening” when Hodgman apologised.
