Is Tony Abbott a changed man?
The question posed by Liz Hayes on Sixty Minutes had some interesting responses.
Margie said he has changed and grown. Well he’s obviously given up on his prospects of being Pope, so that’s a change, and they won’t keep the position open until after the 14th Sept as his second option anyway.
His sister who has come out of the closet says that his attitude to Gays has changed, although that could have been a dollar induced epiphany, when he sold his arse to Murdoch.
She also couldn’t lie about her vehement disagreement about his stand on same sex marriage, which in itself is interesting, as apparently the Gay sister can’t lie, but the rabid right Catholic has no trouble at all in lying through his teeth.
He did however clarify his position when asked about being “Loose with the truth”, stating that in the heat of political discussion they all say things that are ‘less than honest’ (My words). My question to that is, then who was he having a heated political discussion
with, at his plethora of pressers, when he said, numerous times, “Whyalla will be wiped off the map?”, or “Wrecking ball through the economy?”, or every time he quotes one of his three word slogans, which at best are designed to mislead and at worst are downright lies?
And we know he’s changed his mind many times on policy, being referred to as a “Political Weathervane” by no less than the “esteemed” Laurie Oakes. We know that he went from saying that Climate Change was “Crap”, to being a “True” (Gag) believer who wants to give lots of tax payers money to big business on the off chance that they may spend some of it to change their dirty ways, and charge us for the privilege.
All the while telling us that his plan is sooooo much better, even though all the experts say it won’t work and will be much more expensive than what we already have, which in the first six months of operation saw an 8.6% reduction in power production emissions.
A fact that he and his party live in denial over, as they do with any facts that tell a different story from the one that they are promoting.
We know that he will put thousands out of work, take money from pensioners and the disadvantaged, introduce austerity measures, based on a Costello style audit, that will take us down the path of Europe and now QLD, and all for the sake of following an out dated and disproved ideology.
So, is Tony Abbott a changed man?… You bet your life he is.
He has changed from Howard’s political thug and head kicker, to the biggest threat to democracy and way of life, that this country has ever seen, AS Murdoch’s puppet!
