Tony Abbott is a man in a hurry. There's a blue on, and he wants in. The Prime Minister has regressed from statesman to pugilist. He's back to Punchy Tony, the Rocky of the Right, a bloke who's up for any fight, even if he has to start it himself, the former boxing "blue" and front rower ready to deck anyone (including a young Joe Hockey), if they get in his way. Or even if they don't.
