God Help Us
I don’t normally write posts on anything to do with politics. When considering this post, I actually asked myself, is this even about politics?
I think the answer is no.
I think what this post is about is the frightening idea of one particular man becoming Prime Minister of Australia.
Former Prime Minister Paul Keating, has said is Tony Abbott becomes Prime Minister of Australia, then God Help Us All.
Here are just a few of the things Tony Abbott has said over the years.
This is a man who says, that if his answer is prepared and scripted then you can take it as Gospel, but if it’s said on the fly then maybe it’s not really true.
And on gay marriage (and note once again, oh he chose his words poorly when he said he was threatened by gay people)
and just one more: Tony Abbott said this of a terminally ill man who was a fierce advocate for justice and compensation of Australians exposed to asbestos at work.
“I know Bernie is very sick, but just because a person is sick doesn’t mean that he is necessarily pure of heart in all things.”
Oh and the next day he once again said he chose his words poorly.
I don’t think Tony Abbott chooses his words at all. I think he says what he really thinks (which is frequently quite offensive and disrespectful of certain sectors of society) and then when he gets pulled up for it, he apologises.
God Help Us All Indeed.
