Tony Abbott dragging his wife and children into the spotlight will forever change election campaigning in Australia. By pushing his wife, Margie Abbott, in front of the cameras, to defend himself against allegations of his sexist attitudes towards women, and his misogyny, Tony Abbott has now declared families fair game.
Of course, he is a Liberal, and the Right are hypocrites, Abbott could parade his wife before the adoring media (in a publicity stunt that went horribly wrong) at the same time squawking about the media intruding into his personal life.
Image and captions taken from Abbott may roll out ‘secret weapon’ again:
Margie Abbott will be used again to blunt Labor’s attacks on her husband as being anti-women, the Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott said today.
Mr Abbott predicted the anti-women line would be kept up by Labor, saying he expected a “destructive, negative, personal campaign”.
Tony Abbott displays his wife like the freak exhibit in a travelling show and then sends a message to Labor – now that I have brought the Little Woman out to defend me, if you continue to attack my sexism and misogyny, it is you operating a destruct, negative campaign.
