In his own words: Abbott brings our democracy into disrepute.

17 May

 “It is an absolute principle of democracy that governments should not and must not say one thing before an election and do the opposite afterwards. Nothing could be more calculated to bring our democracy into disrepute and alienate the citizenry of Australia from their government than if governments were to establish by precedent that they could say one thing before an election and do the opposite afterwards.” Tony Abbott, August 22, 2011

    Given Abbott is a member of the party which gave us the terms “core and non-core promises” and was a member of the actual government which gave us those terms as well, methinks the gentleman doth protest entirely too much.

    He appears incapable of telling the truth.

    Psychopathic by the medical definition, and a pathological liar.

    And this is the man the Liberal Party have chosen as their leader, and as a result have foisted upon the electorate and the people as Prime Minister?
