    Abbott :- leaving the messy bits (child rearing to his wife) to someone else, again…?

    Timor may prefer to negotiate with Labor. As I recall, the Coalition’s negotiating tactics were particularly aggressive and exploitative.

    Surely there’s pictures of Abbott with his “son” that was born out of wedlock. For someone so happy and content to have 3 daughters he certainly appeared very eager to want that issue to be his. What a psychotic piece of work he is, a boxing wannabe priest who wouldn’t hesitate to evangelize all of us by force to obey the voices in his head that he thinks is God talking to him.

    The soft-focus happy-family Abbott media campaign would have never got off the ground but for Julia’s misogyny speech last October.

    Her overreach then has laid a platform for Tony’s re-invention as a warm-hearted bloke surrounded by loving women.

    Back then, Crikey was full of hyperbole about politics having changed for ever when six months on, it turns out to be yet another Gillard mis-judgement and a very nasty mean spirited one at that.

    I wonder what McTernan thinks about it now?

    Uh huh, and when’s that going to happen ? Because all the women I know under 50 can’t stand the bloke, and most of them think him parading his daughter around is just downright creepy, especially in the context of how important he thinks their virginity is.

    No-one thinks Tony Abbot is “warm hearted”. A couple of decades of prior behaviour makes the mere idea hysterical.

    Abbott Clan Watch. What a disgrace.

    “ABBOTTS BURLEY – electoral strength, for mullet and flat-head”?
