Only yesterday I asked if Tony Abbott would eventually have the blowtorch applied to him. I didn’t have to wait long thanks to Leigh Sales on the 7:30 Report last night. She applied it and Abbott discovered that it burns. It was demonstrably too hot for him to handle. He looked and performed like an absolute dill.
We’ve all had our laughs from it but now it’s time for more serious questions. I’m wondering if the party is ready to ask them.
Here are some important ones they could consider:
- How long can we sustain a leader who displays breathtaking incompetence?
- How long can we remain policy bare?
- How long can we sustain a leader who does not show he is fit to be the alternative Prime Minister?
- How come our leader keeps calling for an election while being totally unprepared for one?
- Would we last long in government under Tony Abbott?
- Can we continue with a leader who regularly embarrasses himself on both the national and international stage?
- Can we continue with a leader who shows more loyalty to the elite few ahead of the wider electorate?
- Do we really want to miss out on the opportunities of the future?
- Can we continue with a leader who is out of touch with the majority of Australians.
- Is our leader too radical?
- Do we have a leader who could sustain media and public scrutiny without ‘cracking’?
- Wouldn’t we be more productive with a firm leader instead of one who continually gets caught out lying or back-flipping?
- Is it wise to return to Howard’s Golden Age, considering the electorate rejected us in 2007 because of Howard’s failed and unpopular policies?
- Are we really heading in the right direction?
- Do we want to be part of a global community or remain isolationist as our current leader would prefer?
- And more importantly, based on the above truths, is it time for a leadership spill?
Is it? What do you think?
