TONY WINDSOR… YOU DA MAN!
I just had a quick look in the mirror and it seems that despite years of abuse, I still have my two front teeth. Given that incredible fact, I have been forced to consider what else I may want for Christmas.
Watching highlights of question time in Canberra yesterday on ABC24, it seems odd that there are highlights, however, it suddenly occurred to me what I really want for Christmas.
What I really want is Tony Windsor (left) to form his own Party. How cool would that be? A Christmas gift to the nation. Well, kind of…
I came to this revelation yesterday, as I watched Tony Windsor sticking it to Tony Abbott during question time.
It was a brilliant display by our favourite Independent, holding Abbott to his words and taking him to task over his negative stance on carbon pricing, something that only a few short years ago he was in favour of, under John Howard.
Windsor kindly reminded everyone that Abbott told him, and others, during negotiations to form government after the election, that he would do “Anything, absolutely anything” to get the PM’s gig in the Lodge. The only thing Abbott wouldn’t do apparently, was “sell his arse”, but added that he’d consider it. How comforting.
Tony Abbott wouldn’t sell his arse, he’d sell ours instead.
Windsor summed up Abbott’s policy positions over the last few years on Climate Change.
“Climate change is crap,” Abbott says. Meanwhile his policy has a hideously expensive plan to supposedly address it.
A Carbon Price is the wrong way to address the issue Abbott states. Not that long ago however, he told a TV programme the best method to address the issue would be a “Carbon Tax”.
Abbott tells us the government’s Carbon Price will hurt families, yet, Windsor says, Abbott has the “audacity” to offer as an alternative, a vastly more expensive policy, that punishes families and pays polluters. Not only that, his Direct Action policy has more holes in it than Alexander Downer’s fish net stockings.
