People are surely asking, how the hell did Australians elect such a bunch of stupid, narrow minded, blinkered, uninspired, unrepresentative, ideologically driven, incompetent morons? It's a testament to Abbott doing the only thing he's good at; politics. It's also a testament to political failure.
We knew Abbott was going to be bad, really bad, being in the gay community. His treatment of us over the ACT legalising marriage equality was and is disgraceful. We were treated with contempt as his gov lodged the high court challenge to the ACT only hours after the legislation passed the ACT parliament. But we didn't expect it to be anywhere near this bad. This shit is just out there...........
It took a while, but we are now seeing the true colours of Abbottism. For those who expected an Abbott administration to resume where the Howard government left off, what we are now seeing will be a surprise.
This is a completely new brand of conservative politics. The new “brand Australia” that the Abbott government is presenting to the world is neo-conservative nationalism, with a populist twist.
