Dear Tony,

I am writing to you to say thank you for The Tony Abbott Unification Program!

I used to think that you were an evil and/or stupid man, but while at the Bentley Blockade I have witnessed the amazing  camaraderie and community spirit that is sweeping the nation and I  have realised what a wonderful and amazing person you are.

You have unselfishly martyred yourself to unite all Australians by introducing ridiculous legislation and laws and forcing all Australians to come together and unite in our opposition to almost everything you have done since you came into power.

And while your position as prime minister of Australia is obviously very temporary your legacy of a united Australia will live on forever.

So it is with deep gratitude that I say Thank You, Tony, for your wonderful gift known as The Tony Abbott Unification Program.

David Filipczyk, AKA Kombi Dave, Bentley
