Don is no-nonsense bloke with a background in the arts and business. He pens unique Aussie banter and has an interest in all things controversial
Remember Albo Sleazy saying that Tony Abbott had no idea about diplomacy? Remember that jerk Burke saying that Tony Abbott was embarrassing Australia in Indonesia? Remember Tania Pilberjerk calling Tony Abbott “Nigel No-friends” when it came to diplomacy? Remember what Short Willy Shorten said? No, neither can I because nobody seems to remember what Shorten says. But I know that he said something equally derogatory.
Anyway, they must be choking on their cornflakes this morning... well and truly choking.
Here were these Labor morons trying to convince the Australian electorate that this bloke had no idea about foreign affairs or international diplomacy, and now he is leading the way internationally in sorting out the formidable MH17 disaster.
Abbott’s controlled anger but firm resolve in regard to this heinous crime is being reported positively right around the globe and we are seeing Tony Abbott for the decisive leader that he is.
It was Tony Abbott, man to man with Vladimir Putin who has managed to convince Putin that it was in his best interest to stop playing the blame game and to use his influence, if not his military might, to ensure that the crash victims’ bodies were recovered as quickly as possible and transported to the Netherlands.
Normally in such circumstances one would think that the US President would be taking the lead in this matter but O’Bummer has been pretty ineffectual and it’s Tony Abbott who has taken the lead, garnering international support both directly and through the United Nations Security Council.
He applied enormous pressure on the Russian President to gain his co-operation.
News services around the globe especially in Britain and the US, including the massive CNN network, have been reporting extensively and positively on Abbott’s controlled but obvious anger regarding this tragedy.
And what about good old Christine Milne? We know how much she despises Abbott and I reckon she would have spat her Bircher muesli and organic yoghurt right across the kitchen table when she read the headlines in this morning’s Oz newspaper.
In between his many conversations with world leaders and our people on the ground overseas, Tony Abbott has also found the time to personally contact the families of the Australian victims of this horrible tragedy. And those are 38 phone calls he would have preferred not to have made.
As for Burke, Sleazy, Pilberjerk, Milne & Co, next time you open your mouths to criticise Tony Abbott, I suggest you put your brains into gear first. Otherwise you may find yourselves looking sillier than you already are, if that is humanly possible.
