The Emperor has no clothes.

So here we are. And Tony Abbott stands before the cameras. And he is naked.
.
For years, Tony Abbott has raged against the carbon price. A tax he called it. A tax collection without an election is not on, he said. And Australia elected him. And he began with introducing a string of new taxes in the budget. The Emperor has no clothes.
.
For years, Tony Abbott has called Julia Gillard a criminal. For years he ranted and he raved. He danced and he jumped. And Australia elected him. And the Royal Commission ruled that Julia Gillard did no wrong. And Tony Abbott refused to apologise because the Emperor has no clothes.
.
“Roads!”, cried the rhodes scholar! 21st technology, he claimed. Tony Abbott even said that the Victorian election will be a referendum on the East-West link. And Victorians voted. And they voted against Abbott’s road. And it was discovered that Abbott’s road was faulty. That it had errors. That there were data on the federal database, but no data on the state database. And it was discovered that Abbott’s road would be a chain around the Victorian people. And it was discovered that rail got you bigger bang for your buck. The Emperor has no clothes.
.
Tony Abbott argued against acting on climate change. He argued this to people who know its risk. They smirked at Tony and his coal lead recovery. One by one, countries pledged to act on climate change. Till Tony was left all alone and had no choice but to tag along with all the others. Poor Tony. The Emperor has no clothes.
.
Arthur Sinodinos fell on his sword today. Excalibur no more. Poor Arthur. He had so hoped that he would bring down a budget. If it’s any consolation Arthur, Joe hasn’t done that yet either. When Arthur became the victim of his own water boarding early in the year, Tony Abbott did not appoint a replacement Assistant Treasurer. Tony said that Mathias and Joe are more than capable. That they are significantly talented and therefore he does not need to replace Arthur. But today things changed. Tony claimed the reason he accepted Arthur’s resignation is he needed an Assistant Treasurer to help with the budget. Poor Mathias and Joe. Not talented enough any more. But the real joke had to be delayed till ABC730 when Abetz, who also refused to apologise to Julia Gillard, inferred that Arthur is in deep ICAC pooh. The Emperor has no clothes.
.
So. Tony stands before you. Naked. As naked as the bias in his Royal Commission into Unions and as naked as his capitulation of the NBN to Telstra. Tony stands naked before you as the globe registers record temperatures. He stands naked before you with a plan to make doctors harder to visit for the poor. He stands before you with a plan to make university admissions only possible if you win Lotto. He stands before you with real cuts to the health system and the education system that Liberal premiers refused to deny did not exist. He stands before you post a Royal Commission that he instigated to mar one person and one person alone and now that same commission has come back with a finding of not guilty, he refuses to apologise.
.
The Emperor has no clothes. He has been weighed. He has been measured. And he has been absolutely found wanting.
