Ab­bott pushes the lim­its

The Saturday Paper - - Letters & Editorial -

I hope the War­ringah Lib­eral Party elec­tors are watch­ing their lo­cal mem­ber as closely as we are (The Week, Septem­ber 30- Oc­to­ber 6). Tony Ab­bott is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly ir­ra­tional and hyp­o­crit­i­cal, as seen by his stri­dent ad­vo­cacy for “free speech” fol­lowed by his at­tempt to ban a song at a football event; his claim­ing sport should be apo­lit­i­cal, while claim­ing con­sid­er­able ex­penses for his at­ten­dance at sport­ing events; his de­nial of the opin­ions of 97 per cent of sci­en­tists about cli­mate change; his be­lief in coal and its fu­ture, de­spite all ev­i­dence et cetera. His long ser­vice to his elec­torate seems to be tak­ing a toll on his health. Per­haps he needs a long rest.
