Tony Abbott isn’t getting the message: he needs to shut his mouth to prevent putting a foot in it. He has been given plenty of opportunities this week to learn this simple lesson.
In his latest epic fail he today he admitted to the Tasmanian State Council that:
. . . . the initial impact of the carbon tax may not be absolutely catastrophic.
What happened to the wrecking ball? What happened to Whyalla? What about those 1,001 visits to every butcher, baker and candle-stick maker with dire warnings that their business was doomed?
In a flash Wayne Swan jumped on the comment from Abbott that the impact of the carbon tax has not been catastrophic, declaring his “scare campaign was a fraud”.
I’m hoping, via this short post, that we of the Café might also take the opportunity to jump on the comment.
I encourage a free-for-all. Spare the man no mercy.
Monday is officially “Pick on Tony Abbott Day”.
