Crikey says: the top gong for the top dog

The envelope please … Who’s Crikey’s politician of the year? Policy examined: a federal universities takeover, and scrapping the health body advising on asylum seekers. How the ABC could answer critics on bias. The freelance economy: why we’re ditching the boss. Plus what Fred Nile wanted for his wedding.

Is this Australia’s best politician?

As we begin to hand out our annual gongs, let the debate begin …

(You can still vote for the person of the year and Crikey’s dishonourable arsehat: there’s plenty to choose from.)

    Abbott is NOT my Prime Minister. I didn’t vote for him, and will never accept that he won the race fair and square. Ltd. News won it for him!
    Ly*ng bloody hound. Manipulating bloody press. Both as bad as each other.

    Best? Hardly.

    Most prominent in terms of producing a train wreck - true!

    In a heavily crowded field, Kevin Rudd leads by a country mile for arsehat of the decade. So, why isn’t he on the list?

    All we need is Abbott looking down the throat of a gramophone listening for “His Murdoch’s Voice”?

    They’re pretty rare though, maybe a Caroma “IPA gramophone” ? ….. “Eye WAS knot! I was having a smoothie!”
