CSI: Tony Abbott (A bloody oath of a journey)
Time to take the knife to Tony Abbott and get him sliced and placed under a magnifying glass! Who are you? Who! Who! Who! who!
Once this man who would give out free blow jobs to get elected told Australia that not everything he says is true. That there was a difference between what he says and what is written down.
What did he mean by this you wonder? Well as shown by Laurie Oakes in his new piece, Tony Abbott tends to break not one promise, but many.
In the lead up to 2004 election Tony Abbott as the then Health Minister, gave to all Australian’s a ‘rock-solid iron-clad commitment’ to the Medicare Safety Net. Even then, you could see his penchant for three worded slogans even when he wasn’t only using three words.
And even then you know he was lying through his teeth. On being elected in 2004, Abbott’s ‘rock-solid iron-clad commitment’ disappeared back into the dark crevice it originally came from.
“Obviously, when circumstances change, governments do change their opinions, and that is actually the responsible course of action.”
This is the same man who has been trying to cause the country to hate the Prime Minister because circumstances had changed and a hung parliament was elected.
Abbott will now have you think you should despise the PM because she broke her promise. But this is what he expects people to do when HE breaks a promise
“I can certainly understand the dismay of some electors,” Abbott told me in an interview at the time. But he added that a politician could have a mind change after an election “when you have time to reflect and consider these things“.
It seems Abbott thinks that he should be judged differently than the way he wants people to judge the prime minister even though they did exactly the same thing.
The Medicare Safety Net was designed to help those who could not afford medicine. What Tony Abbott effectively did was tell these people that they can only be sick to a limit of $500 a year in bills. After that, they should be apparently paying for their own health bills with that money that they did not have and hence the need for the safety net in the first place.
Did people die? Oh without a doubt. Where people forced to endure illness without the hope of being able to afford medicine? No doubt. Did Tony Abbott even care? I mean he was the Health Minister right? Did he care about the health of Australians?
The irony is in Abbott’s response where he calls Bernie Banton getting out of a sick bed as a ‘stunt’, yet he has the time to stand in front of offensive signs and talk to what he labelled as ‘real’ Australians because Banton was not a real person I assume.
And now Abbott is claiming he has signed a blood pledge on the issue of Carbon Pricing. Well there are two issues here Abbott. Issue one is show us the pledge. I want to see it written down. I want to analysis the blood you used to ink it with. You told me not to believe you until I see it written down, so where is this pledge Tony? Is it in another ministers’ wallet aka the Costello-Howard agreement?
And now issue two. You have the gall to call for a blood pledge. You who’s actions in 2004 lead the to death of hundreds of Australians. You who cut short the lives of peoples fathers, brothers, mothers, sisters, uncles, and aunts. You who extracted loved ones out of people’s lives with the callous flick of your rock-solid iron-clad commitment.
Here is my blood pledge to you arsehole.
For those who lost loved ones, this is my blood pledge to you. You owe them the lives you took. I intend to see it extracted out of your political hide.
You have my ‘rock-solid iron-clad commitment’ you toad. You want blood? Let there be blood.
