For three illustrious years Tony Abbott told us ad nauseum that he’ll stop the boats, destroy the carbon tax, save the country and save our souls. And going by the polls it had worked for him.
Those with an IQ above the idiot level have been highly amused by his antics. We’ve seen him, basically, as an idiot appealing to idiots.
But what has it added up to? Absolutely nothing. Three years of pure madness have been wasted as the playing field has now changed and the polls have thus turned. Yet still he goes on about the boats and electricity prices, while munching on pies and clutching to the pamphlet that will change the world. Same old same old.
Not much has changed in his little world. It has escaped him that nobody cares what he says anymore.
I would have thought that a shift in the polls might have encouraged a shift in the way he plays the game. But no. He’s still relying on his slogans and his scare tactics. No Plan B by the looks of it.
The slogans and the scaring haven’t worked so his response has been to up the ante: even more slogans and even more scaring.
Tony, give it up, mate. It won’t win you the election. The electorate aren’t the idiots you thought they were. The shift in the polls should have told you that.
Try something else. Perhaps show us some guts or show us some policies.
