No matter how high Tony Abbott keeps raising the bar of stupidity he manages to hurdle over it with athletic ease.
Thanks to Kaye Lee over at The AIMN she has provided us with his latest effort and one that raises the bar higher than GWB could ever hope to clear. It’s a comment on his favourite topic: boats. Brace yourself for this one . . .
And if any boat ever set out from Australia to Indonesia to enter that country illegally, we would do our damnedest to stop it.
Yes, he said it.
Now I realise that Tony’s knowledge of asylum seekers is very shallow, but even he should be aware that Indonesia doesn’t have a problem with boatloads of asylum seekers departing Australia with their sights set on landing safely on their shores. What’s the count so far? Precisely none. How many have tried? Precisely none.
But it’s good to know that Tony is in control of the problem. And what would he do with the asylum seekers fleeing Australia? Send them to Nauru? Turn them back?
I might give it a try to see what happens. While he is Prime Minister I’m sure I can find many who would be willing to take the trip with me. I might push off from Hobart and circle around New Zealand to escape detection.
Seriously, while he and his incompetent mob are running the country the Navy is going to be kept very busy . . . not only watching for boats heading to Australia . . . but watching for boats leaving it.
