Tony Abbott: The Opposition Prime Minister

"The ignominy of the punch-drunk Tony Abbott, down for the count, still bleeding and still needy to reclaim the wattle crown of prime minister is becoming more than a political embarrassment for his own party. He is now a liability to Australia's national security.

"His demeanour is that of a critically injured politician who has been spurned by the majority of his party and the majority of Australian people. He fails to grasp that the nation is just not that into him anymore.

"He is a tragic and pathetic figure. We have already reported concerns by colleagues for his seemingly pathological hatred for Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull that has not diminished since his older nemesis deposed him, but instead has increased in histrionic desperation more so in recent months and days.

"For no other reason than to satisfy his own thwarted ambition and mongering for power, he is prepared to humiliate himself to daily assail Turnbull and, clearly, to destroy his party and the Coalition entire."


There's little to choose between Trump and Abbott for sheer annoyingness - the only reaction I have to both of them when they open their mouths is "Oh, for God's sake, shut up!"

But Trump is at least, for now, the elected pResident. Abbott is a backbencher, with no position and no authority. According to the latest poll, 43% of voters think he should just quit parliament. And go away somewhere, and be quiet.

But he doesn't - he keeps shoving his unwanted opinions in our faces, and proves every day that he's a nutjob and should never be given public office again.
