Looking at Australian politics has become a depressing exercise. All we ever seem to hear is the endless bleating of Tony ‘the sky is falling’ Abbott trying to scare everyone and his helpful flunkies in the state governments falling over themselves to try to help him.
I have yet to hear Tony Abbott say a positive thing about our country. All he ever does is attack it. I can’t understand why he wants to be the prime minister of a country he seems to hold in such poor esteem.
Instead of proposing great big new taxes on us to fund his election plans while cutting the taxes for his party’s mates Gina Rinehart and Clive Palmer, maybe Tony Abbott should get real and come up with some policies that help people rather than hurt them.
