When Tony Abbott was asked a question by Ch 7’s Mark Riley there was almost 20 seconds of silence and head shaking (The Tony Abbott head wobble). Silence seems to be how Tony Abbott deals with anything he doesn’t like, for example, for a man who has been running an election campaign since he lost in 2010, endlessly fronting the media, he has been strangely absent for the past several days
The Abbott video is only 42 seconds and well worth every second of it, the inadequacy of the Man who would be Dear Leader to deal with one reporter. He would have fitted in perfectly with Arrested Developments’ Chicken Dance montage (2nd video).
As the channel 7 video shows, when reporters do ask questions, the result can be one of the most famous clips in Australian politics in recent years. When reporters just parrot what
Tony Abbott says, they become bland, one of many, hardly unique, and practically unwatchable.
