No remedy for Tonyphobia
Everybody is entitled to have their say on any aspect of Australian politics, in exactly the same way that Australians are not prevented from discussing politics in other countries. Ours is a free and open society. That said, there is something creepy and obsessive about left-wing activist group GetUp!’s pursuit of former prime minister Tony Abbott in Warringah.
Abbott has been a backbencher since 2015. He holds no ministry. Yet GetUp!’s zealots are going after him as though Abbott is the most powerful political entity in the land.
Maybe GetUp! is simply frightened of the ex-PM.
