“We will socialise decisions before we finalise them and that way we’re more likely to take the people with us!” says Tony Abbott after winning the motion against the spill in a landslide.
Actually, I’m not a socialist. I’m planning to become ridiculously wealthy by exploiting the poor…
Mm, maybe I’d be better to exploit the rich. They have more money. Unfortunately, they’re less reluctant to part with it. Even when confronted with the good cause of making me richer than Rupert Murdoch so I can buy up his company and sack him!
Anyway, I’ve decided to support Tony after all that he said today, because I feel that he’s given me a clear idea of what he intends to do.
Well, I already know that he has a plan. Even if he’s kept it from most of Australia… And, apparently most of the Liberal MPs, too.
But his plan is a thing of the past. And as he said, “Good Government starts today…”
Or was it tomorrow on “Back To Work, Tuesday”?
I prefer to look for positives, because I’ve decided to get behind Tony for the good of the country because the last thing we need is the sort of division that comes from the sort of people who are leaners, rather than learners and Tony tells us that he’s certainly learned from the last few weeks. Or was it months? We shouldn’t judge a first term PM too harshly, because after all he’s still learning.
So what exactly are the positives?
Well, he did say that they hadn’t become the Labor Party. Surely that’s a positive. I mean, any Liberal Party that doesn’t become the Labor Party is still the Liberal Party, even though Tony may have socialised decisions instead of privatising them like any decent Liberal would.
“I can understand people’s anxieties, but the point that I’ve been making to my colleagues is that I am a fighter.”
Gee, I thought that the Liberals were all about getting all warm and cuddly and not fighting any more. But clearly, Tony knows best.
Perhaps, he should just forget about all this spill nonsense and offer to go five rounds in the ring with anyone prepared to challenge him.
