I don’t mean to pick on Tony Abbott specifically, but he keeps giving me such great ammunition. Today’s column draws a contrast between the federal government – which risks losing the next election – and the NSW state government, which everyone expects will win.
This is odd because some of John Howard’s fiercest critics admit (through gritted teeth) he has been an accomplished prime minister. In contrast, no one has a good word to say about the NSW Labor Government, which has “more to do” even by its own admission.
Accomplished slimebag and weasel politician, more like.
After detailing the many failings on the NSW government – in which he is as uncharitable as he is unreasonably generous to John Howard and his band of thugs – he concludes:
If a 12-year-old Government with a leader charitably described as a likeable lightweight can survive under these circumstances, every bad government will conclude you can treat voters like mugs and get away with it.
Well why wouldn’t they, Tony? Your lot have been getting away with it for almost as long.
