I must admit that I admire Tony Abbott for having the courage to continually demonstrate his extreme level of stupidity. Over the weekend he has leapfrogged local clowns such as Andrew Bolt, Alan Jones and Piers Ackerman and now sits alone on the top of the idiot tree. On the international scale, he is now in reach of George W Bush.
What put him there?
This, during his address at the City of Holdfast Bay Australia Day Awards and Citizenship Ceremony in Adelaide:
The first lot of Australians were chosen by the finest judges in England . . .
He really has raised the bar of stupidity, hasn’t he?
Mr Abbott, not only did Australia have an Indigenous population for 60,000 years, but the white settlement here in 1788 was to establish a penal colony. For goodness sake, even new-born babies know that one.
If only Mr Abbott would have listened to little Johnnie way back in 2007:
Prime Minister John Howard has described the “neglect” of history teaching in Australian schools as “shameful”, announcing that he would make the subject compulsory for all students in years 9 and 10.
Mr Howard said students would be made to attend 150 hours of Australian history lessons over two or three years from 2009.
The history guide, to be distributed across the nation, says it is intended for study in years nine and 10, but the first three of the 10 topics could start in year 8, it says.
Mr Howard said compulsory teaching of Australian history would be a condition of the next Commonwealth schools funding agreement with the states and territories, which begins on January 1, 2009.
Yes, Mr Howard, it is shameful. Just look how Tony Abbott turned out . . .
