DE­SPITE the fact Tony Ab­bott said he would not snipe from the back bench when he was de­posed as Prime Min­is­ter two years ago, he has been caus­ing waves of dis­unity within the Lib­eral team.

In fact, his ev­ery word is rel­ished by Bill Shorten and his co­horts.

It is ob­vi­ous he is driven by the de­sire to lead the party, even if it is from the Op­po­si­tion benches.

Per­haps he should con­sider a ca­reer change – Ab­bott by name, ab­bot by na­ture – and spend his time in a monastery re­flect­ing and lead­ing a merry band of Trap­pist monks.

I am sure that many of his Lib­eral col­leagues would ap­pre­ci­ate the sound of si­lence.
