Tony Abbott pops up in Afghanistan just as the Peter Slipper’s hand grenade goes off in James Ashby’s hand.
The Liberals were quite happy to have Mr Slipper in their team when it suited them, but the payback coup has backfired, after Slipper was told he would lose his preselection and crossed the floor.
All of this and other behaviour by Mr Abbott has had
one thing in mind – bringing
down the government of Australia.
Could there ever be a more serious allegation made by a judge of the court, in respect of the gutter behaviour of LNP politicians in our country?
To quote Mr Abbott, no.
What is more ironic is that before this sordid event, Mr Ashby was sending derogatory text messages about Mr Brough, who was trying to take over his boss’s seat.
Now Mr Abbott has said Mr Brough has been transparent.
Not true, Mr Abbott – you really are loose with the truth: Mr Brough was forced to come out and admit he had three meetings with Mr Ashby.
So is this the behaviour we can expect from an elected Coalition government, is it?
All things considered, one would expect that this will be the last that Mr Abbott uses his bucket and spade, except to dig his own hole.
I trust that Ms Bishop will call Mr Brough and ask him for a full explanation because, what goes around comes around, and this is approaching at breakneck speed.
Your call, Ms Bishop.
