Democracy dead if Abbott plan to take control of top job succeeds
A.J. MACNAUGHTON (Letters, Sep 29) made some concerning assertions in regard to former prime minister Tony Abbott.
Firstly, there is a prediction that Abbott will return as Liberal Party leader after the next election and that the Coalition will win. This seems at odds with what seems like a campaign by Abbott to ensure a crushing defeat.
Secondly, Macnaughton asserted that only Abbott knows “how to control this country”.
It seems democracy would be dead under an Abbott/Macnaughton Liberal government.
This country will never be controlled while we have the means to express our views and vote.
Control is not a word that should be used for people.
