Tony Abbott being ‘jailed’ for being an Aussie good bloke. A copy of the article may be downloaded by clicking on: TONY ABBOTT BEING ‘JAILED’ FOR BEING AN AUSSIE GOOD BLOKE
After a car accident, stuck out in a mountainous village, alone and on your back staring at the ceiling for two weeks, forces one to reflect on life. Thoughts of, what one has contributed to mankind and to ones immediate community. Feelings of being isolated from those close to you or those who you could rely on is not a pleasant feeling and all that you can go on is your will to move forward no matter the consequences, for failure waits for no one.
One therefore can understand the inner turmoil in the mind of Tony Abbott as he grapples with a revolt amongst his back benches and at the same times reflects on his performance. The ordinary bloke in the street is not concerned about such matters as long as the leader of the country is getting on with the job. 50 years such a move as granting an Australian knighthood to Prince Phillip would not have caused any ripples in Australian society and in most cases would have been welcomed.
If someone is to criticise Tony Abbott it will be for being a good bloke and for having the interests of Australia above all else. Our Australian culture believes that its un-Australian to kick a bloke down he is down and extending a hand to help him is more in line with our beliefs. Those Liberal party back benchers that have delusions of power and alleged influence are nothing more than ankle biters who have nothing better to do but bark at the heels of the leader. What is more sinister is the deceivers and the sycophants whose true recalcitrant nature is becoming to emerge because they smell blood and all want to be in on the kill.
These alleged ring leaders will one day emerge from their lairs and will be publicly shamed into revealing their innocuous and ‘Janus’ like personalities. Some of these ‘nail biters’ and alleged ‘leakers’ are based in Victoria, West Australia, New South Wales and Queensland. They share their yarns and stories at Canberra morning tea parties, spreading malicious gossip about the leader Tony Abbott. Who is the ring leader and who has the most to benefit from such changes are difficult and yet obvious questions which require answers and only a few select are in the know. It is admirable that George Brandis, Kevin Andrews and others have come out publicly to support Tony Abbott and that is how it should be. Unity in leadership is paramount not unity in stupidity amongst the recalcitrant back benchers and other recalcitrants who should hang their heads in shame. I will go as far as call them ‘weak bastards’ and un-Australian.
The Victorian Liberal government in its infinite wisdom, supported by recalcitrant and sycophant political advisers distanced themselves from Tony abbot and attempts were made unsuccessfully to lay the entire blame for their losses upon Tony Abbott. What gutless bastards they were and they still are. These same Victorians are now reeling from internal and dynamic changes and looking for a scapegoat, regrouping and reforming as a means of bringing disorder and chaos to an organisation that was once the jewel in the crown. These Victorian miscreants with their nocturnal activities need to be flushed out and removed from any position of influence. Dont blame Tony Abbott for mistakes made by you.
Call the author what you like, volatile, erratic, nutter, who cares, the author certainly does not. There are times in one’s life where you must make a “Custers stand” and go down fighting for the common good of all. This author does not want to be on the side lines batting for both teams but rather for the team that has Australia’s interest at heart and in this case Tony Abbott has the cricket bat. Maybe a cricket bat is what is required in such circumstances and not the ball. If you want play political cricket do it as a team, because if you dont you can’t have your cricket bat and ball at the same time. They go hand in hand.
Those considering replacing Tony Abbott as leader should think twice as he is the representative of not just the political team but also represents all Australians. Look at Tony Abbotts, political record and successful outcomes and make an unbiased judgement when one considers the successful projects and policies against the policies not allowed by the Senate. Therefore I am sure that those contemplating such a negative course of action to replace Tony Abbott will be seen forever as the recalcitrant nail biting leakers who let down their leader. God help Tony Abbott because he will not help those who are preparing to knife him like the ‘Brutus’ of ancient Rome. A true Aussie will rally around the leader, not knife him.
