Tony Abbotts “Australians for Honest Politics”

Tony Abbott’s “Australians for Honest Politics”

This is my first new poem for the year, and a subject that needs to be kept in the publics eye, as the MSM are MIA on this and many other issues which I hope to cover in the coming weeks and months leading up to the election.


Tony Abbotts Australians for Honest Politics


Australians for honest politics

Is another Abbott lie

The slush fund that won’t go away

Despite how hard he’ll try

He’ll push the usual Abbott lines

Of spin and lies and slogans

But the truth won’t set the Abbott free

Just expose his bunch of bogans


Ms Hanson was the problem

That Tony felt he had to fix

By garnering some funding

From his mates, the right wing dicks

Terry Sharples, Abbott guaranteed

Would not be out of pocket

If the disaffected Hansonite

Made sure that she would cop it


So with Abbotts clear assurance

Sharples lodged his supreme court writ

But it soon came clear to Abbott

That the case had turned to shit,

He said, “Terry, you have perjured yourself,

So terminate your action now.

And costs will be ordered against you

But I’ll just milk the LNP cow”


Then the Abbott set up his slush fund

And called it Australians for Honest Politics

Then he sold it to his donors

A bunch of wealthy right wing dicks

But when the AEC asked who they were

The Abbott promptly lied

Saying he’d spoken to a lawyer

And those names, he’s right to hide


So the AEC were fooled

Taking Abbott at his word

Which, with Abbotts form on lies and spin

Seems totally absurd

Then his right wing lawyers said to Sharples

As he was holding out his hand

“Abbott’s not prepared to pay all your cost

But he’ll give you this ten grand.”


Though Sharples lost, Hanson paid the cost

And to the gaol she went

While the questions asked of Abbott

Showed the man is really bent

And when questioned about lying to Tony Jones

He said, “misleading the ABC

Is not as bad as misleading parliament

As a political crime, you see”


Now all this happened from 1998

To the year 2003

But Hanson served less than three months gaol

And on appeal, she was set free

But there were questions that were never asked

Of Abbott and his donors

With their born to rule mentality

Who when winning, all get boners.


So fast forward to, 2012

With Abbotts plans all gone awry

And his schemes and machinations

To steal government, just won’t fly

So with typical right wing projection

He points the finger at our PM

Saying the AWU slush fund affair

Was illegal way back then


So his mates in the MSM decided

To dig up all the dirt

And he gave the task to Bishop

To be executioner, in a skirt

But being morally deficient

She just couldn’t hit the spot

And her sidekick Pyne proved spitting dummies is fine

But it’s all the poodle’s got


Still they dug and dug, and accusations flew

But none of it could stick

Till the PM finally called the bluff

On the Misogynistic dick

And the best he had was an ambit claim

Of conduct unbecoming

For a lawyer with a shonky bloke

With whom, with hindsight, she was slumming


But corruption claims, they could not prove

Cos there were no points there to score

But in the process Abbotts own slush fund

Started coming to the fore

And the people want some answers

To some questions never posed

Of the Abbotts slush fund and the investigation

That the AEC conveniently closed


And the names of all the donors

That the Abbott would not disclose

With the whole thing, like a corrupted version

Of the Emperors New Clothes

With the Abbott in his budgies

Crying “Gillards still a crim”

While the spotlight slowly turns around

To focus right on him


So the moral for the LNP is just

Be careful, who you accuse

As with skeletons in your own closets

It could be you that starts to lose

And it’s at your own sad peril

When you start throwing your stones

Cos just like Abbotts slush fund skeletons

He’s rattled… the wrong…. bones

    Well done, now you are really going to have to get your roller skates on. Julia’s called the Election for 14 September. She stunned and shocked the media with that announcement, they were all sitting there like stunned mullets. Had to throw out all their stupid questions, and came up with even more stupid ones.


  2. Truth Seeker says:

    Gravel, thanks for that, and yes it’s going to be a busy year. 😀

    And good on Julia for taking the heat out of all the MSM speculation about an election date and forcing them to, at least, try to focus on policy and important issues like asking Abbott some real questions 😯 🙄 😥

    Cheers 🙂 😀 😆


  3. Sandra says:

    Were we not calling for the PM to step up to the mark and really take leadership. Way to go girl.
    Once again Truth Seeker, another great pome. Love your prose!!!


  4. Truth Seeker says:

    Sandra, welcome to my blog, and thanks for your kind words and feedback. 😀

    Yes you are right, and I think that she will be on the front foot more and more from here on in, much to the chagrin of LOTO and the MSM 😯

    Go Julia 😀 😀 😀

    Cheers 🙂 😀 😆


  5. Good one Truth Seeker.

    btw I don’t know what happened with my site – it changed, looks lousy and I don’t know why or what to do about it.


  6. Truth Seeker says:

    Janice, I did have a quick look at your site yesterday, after a couple of days off the air due to QLD weather.

    It did look OK then, but I just checked it to have a look, and it looks like the background has changed.

    If you go into appearance you should be able to change it.

    I hope to have a good read of your latest posts over the next couple of days 😀

    I also told our writers group about your site, and I noticed a couple of hits on your link later that day 😀

    BTW, thanks for your continued support and comments, I greatly appreciate your input. 😎

    Cheers 🙂 😀 😆
