Tony Abbott – the meerkat of Australian politics

Has anyone else noticed the distinct lack of appearance of Tony Abbott since the election?

To me it seems that he pops his head up for a few minutes, says something mind-numbing stupid, pops down, re-appears the following day to attempt to back out of his verbal expectoration, and then disappears until the next week.

If this is his attempt to perpetuate the Liberals’ election policy of hiding him from the public as much as is humanly possible, then it’s working a treat.  Unfortunately Joe Hockey is not reading from the same script and is stealing a massive amount of Tony’s thunder…however much of a damp squib it might be.  Joe is well and truly on the populism track and has the bank bashing bit between his teeth and is taking it to town.   Only time will tell if he gains from this, but he’s obviously position himself as the next sacrificial lamb to take on the poison chalice of Opposition leadership.

Maybe this time Rupert will be able to push him all the way into the top job as apart from his obvious stupidity and ability to sweat in a freezer, he has less obnoxious baggage than the Meerkat.

    Massive, do you really think old Rupe believes big Joe is electable?

      I reckon it’s a possibility…don’t know how though. All the extra air time he’s getting is literally just increasing his chances of making a goose of himself.
      It won’t be long before he stuffs up, or pulls out one of the well worn phrase from the Coalition handbook. As it is he’s nearly stuffed it by contradicting himself repeatedly…fortunately the media have just glossed over it so he’s safe for now.

    Call me crazy but Abbott like Gillard is going to be pushed out soon.They are both out of their depth.Abbott because he is as thick as two short planks in the perception area.Gillard because she appears to be strutting the world stage and being confused with some one that should be shearing sheep.Joe Hockey for mine is going to take them to the next election.We’ll soon see?

      We can only hope it is Hockey lynot.
      He is a buffoon of the first order and there are ample examples of his complete incompetence in his many portfolios.

      Which Bishop…beehive or death stare? Either one would shrivel the testicles of any male voter.
