Abbott pushes the limits
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.
