EX-TV PERSON WITH THE OVERDOSE EYES WANTS TO ROLL TONY ABBOTT
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
Of course Mr James Mathison has his hand on it because his chances of success are somewhere between zero and zilch. But as with most ex-TV persons he is suffering from relevance deficit syndrome after six years out of the limelight... he believes he still has undiscovered appeal.
Tony Abbott will not lose too much sleep over this ex-TV person as any votes he may attract as an Independent in Warringah will all be at the expense of the Greens and Labor who totalled 35% between them. Abbott maintains an unapproachable 16 per cent margin of safety against dickheads like Mr Mathison.
Abbott still dreams his formidable achievements will one day be recognised but the best he can hope for is a Cabinet position in a new Turnbull Government, but Turnbull has denied that Abbott is a starter in a post election Cabinet race.
Turnbull seems determined to make the same mistake Gillard made with Rudd when she left him playing with his donger and eating cerumen and celery sandwiches on the back bench, leaking like a sieve while aching for revenge. So what, it’s hard to put Turnbull in a smarter grade than Gillard anyway.
But a lot of people in the Left media, including this ex-TV person Mathison, want Abbott dead and gone... all memory erased. Yet Abbott's achievements in only two years of his first term while hamstrung by a pig-swill Senate were really quite momentous and now the whole World is breaking its neck wanting to know how the hell he stopped these damned boats.
I guess it will be another 50 years before the archives reveal Tony Abbott’s mark on history. Meanwhile we need to endure ex-TV person Mathison explaining how he could do it better.
Bloody hell, I want some of what he’s on!
