Tony Abbott says… lots of things

Tony Abbott says: climate change is real… Humanity is making a contribution… It’s important to have a strong and effective policy to bring emissions down

Tony Abbott says: If you want to put a price on carbon why not just do it with a simple tax. Why not ask motorists to pay more? Why not ask electricity consumers to pay more?

Tony Abbott says: immigration should go up

Tony Abbott says: Jesus didn’t say yes to everyone… This idea that Jesus would say to every person who wanted to come to Australia, ‘Fine, the door’s open’, I just don’t think is necessarily right

actually, Mr Abbott, as someone who has read a bible, I can tell you Jesus didn’t really have all that much to say about Australia, but he did have a lot to say about loving your neighbour

the day after the NSW premier attempted suicide.
Tony Abbott says: (re health reforms) If we did that, we would be as dead as the former Liberal leader’s political prospects

isn’t that just a little callous and inappropriate there Tony?

Tony Abbott says: I just want to make it clear I have never told an inappropriate joke, I’ve never pinched a woman on the backside and I never make inappropriate gestures to women.

that’s how you apologise for making a joke about someone attempting suicide?

Tony Abbott says: One of the problems with the NSW Liberal Party is big flapping ears and big wagging tongues

ok, moving on, surely you would have more sympathy and empathy for someone dying from a disease contracted in the workplace?

when anti-asbestos campaigner, Bernie Banton, in the final stages of the disease that would kill him, tried to present a petition to Tony Abbott health minister, about cheaper drugs for those dying
Tony Abbott says: It was a stunt… I know Bernie is very sick, but just because a person is sick doesn’t necessarily mean that he is pure of heart in all things

how does someone apologise for a comment like that?
Tony Abbott says: Bernie is a sick man and obviously he has the moral high ground… Obviously I shouldn’t have been as dismissive as I was

maybe Tony, you wouldn’t be as dismissive about the death of an Australian in Afghanistan, a war that a government you were part of send troops to
Tony Abbott says: (about a dead digger) sometimes shit happens

Tony Abbott says: (while in government) Compulsory paid maternity leave? Over this Government’s dead body, frankly.

Tony Abbott says: I think a very strong ‘conservative’ case can be made for it [paid parental leave] because the most conservative thing anyone can do is have a family, and far too many bright, modern women have no children

how does Tony Abbott deal with political opponents? he sets up dirt files and court cases, no, not Slipper… This was Pauline Hanson, who later went to prison
Tony Abbott says: the reality of her so-called party needed to be exposed and I was happy to try to do it… Labor speaker after Labor speaker were demanding, screaming, that the Government in general, but I in particular, do something to stop this terrible Hanson woman.
Well, I did.

Tony Abbott says: Misleading the ABC is not quite the same as misleading the parliament

Tony Abbott says: I know politicians are going to be judged on everything they say, but sometimes, in the heat of discussion, you go a little bit further than you would if it was an absolutely calm, considered, prepared, scripted remark, which is one of the reasons why the statements that need to be taken absolutely as gospel truth is those carefully prepared scripted remarks

Tony Abbott says: (about homosexuality) I probably feel a bit threatened, as so many people do. It’s a fact of life.

then while apologising for the feeling threatened comment,
Tony Abbott says: There is no doubt that (homosexuality) challenges, if you like, orthodox notions of the right order of things.

then while explaining why that was a poor choice of words,
Tony Abbott says: Yeah look it was a poor choice of words. Look, I think blokes of my generation and upbringing do sometimes find these things a bit confronting

Tony Abbott says: What the housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing is that if they get it done commercially it’s going to go up in price, and their own power bills when they switch the iron on, are going to go up

how patronising, care to explain yourself Mr Abbott

Tony Abbott says: It’s just people being hypersensitive… But I think in many households it is still much more common to see the woman of the house with an iron in her hand

actually, no, probably best if you don’t explain yourself

Tony Abbott says: a bad boss is a little bit like a bad father or a bad husband. Not withstanding all his or her faults, you find that he tends to do more good than harm.

Tony Abbott says: (about virginity) I would say to my daughters… it is the greatest gift you can give someone, the ultimate gift of giving, and don’t give it to someone lightly.

When Mr Family Values Tony Abbott was 19, his girlfriend became pregnant, believed Abbott to be the biological father – they were not married

Tony Abbott says: I don’t say that evolution is a complete and entirely satisfactory scientific explanation of the origin of man.

perhaps women arrived on the planet somewhat separately from the men

what do you say about discrimination, Tony?
Tony Abbott says: the Liberal Party is against all forms of discrimination. That’s our general principle.

so you would supporting ending the discrimination against LGBTIQ people, and allow marriage equality? No? What do you mean NO?
Tony Abbott says: (why he opposes marriage equality) Just being consistent before an election and afterwards #asktony

Tony Abbott says: Stop The Boats
so, Tony, being born overseas as you were, how did you arrive in Australia? by boat you say, the SS Oronsay, so if you insist on stopping boats, can we make it retrospective? and will you be Stopping The Planes too?

You’re a disgrace Tony Abbott

Tony Abbott says: Shit happens

  1. That somebody this hideous is the leader of the Liberal Party of Australia and god help us all if we ever had the utter shame of this thing being the leader of this great country, well all Australians should hang their heads in absolute shame. It does show the utter depths to which the Liberal Party has descended. We have also got to thank the MSM for this bloke because they have never had the courage to even slightly ask him the hard questions and to continue to ask him the hard questions. If they did they would expose him as the lieing hypocritical coward that he really is. Phoney Tony with glass jaw.

    • Even when he is “apologising” (making excuses for something stupid, sexist, racist, inappropriate he has said) that is sometimes just as offensive and he has to apologise for that too. He changes his mind, he lies, he obfuscates, backtracks, qualifies, everything he says. And when it does get reported, its a turn of phrase, taken out of context, in the heat of give and take of conversation, slip of the tongue, a misrepresentation. He says what he means and MSM cover for him, if he gets into power and destroys what is left of Australia, the media will be just as complicit.
      -99 for Turn Left
