Say “NO” to Tony Abbott Week.


Okay! Its officially unofficial! ‘Say “NO” to Tony Abbott week is unofficially official! It will need you good readers to get it to viral status in the social media so here is the FACEBOOK page link.

This is an open nation wide campaign! I urge all to think of some way they can promote the cause and do something every day culminating in the grand celebration I want as many people to celebrate!

I know I have not really given much notice, but I reckon in the middle of September is when the Carbon Price bill will be introduced so a week of public support for it will only help!

Now the idea is to do whacky, but safe (and legal) things. Get a group and wear budgie smugglers at lunch in the park. (Over your trousers is fine). Walk around with big fake ears pouting and saying ‘No’ over and over. What ever think of!

But I got a GREAT idea for the final day. Sunday the 17th. What I want to see is a “Convoy of Confident No’s”. Hell even I will try to get out of the house for this!

You don’t need trucks! Think ROMPER ROOM! I want to see a fleet of cardboard boxes made to look like trucks.

We can roll up and ‘drive’ onto the lawns of Parliament House for that ‘Say “YES” to Sanity’ protest someone bandied about earlier this year. Picnic arvo. Someone may have to help me with the logistics as I have trouble catering for a poker game.

Who is with me? Hell who can actually help this become a reality? Would love to see 3000 plus people in a kaleidoscope of cardboard trucks dancing to a mass group karaoke version of ‘Convoy’.

Here is the tune! Learn the lyrics! And get trucking!

    A big ‘NO’ to you Tony Abbott. Take your empty policy cupboard, your empty rhetoric, and your lies and stick them where ‘Shit Happens’

    NO! to Smuggles 365 days a year! NO! to Smuggles 7 days a week! NO! to Smuggles 60 minutes of every hour! NO! to Smuggles every second of every minute!
