From The Jaws of Victory

I never thought he could be so stupid.

Aussie PM Tony Abbott, that is.

Yesterday he lost the next federal election by awarded the goofy greenie vegan Prince Charles a knighthood.

Amazingly, he did not consult cabinet on this appallingly damaging decision.

My bad.

Still an election looser.

I heard this and thought wtf???

I mean, what is in this for Australia - or Abbott for that matter???

There is just no upside that I can think of, and I'm not anti Prince Philip but I can just see how this is going to play out and it's all bad for Abbott!

Prince Philip would hardly want or need the honour anyway. Can anyone think of why on earth he might have done this? Surely there is a reason?

The way I see it Phillips job over the past 70 odd years has been to keep the Queen sane and thus benefit the Commonwealth.

He's done a pretty good job and kept us all amused for decades at the same time so thats definitely worth an honour.

The worst aspect of this thing is his failure to consult.

A total absence of political brains.

More evidence that Abbott is a drongo!

The Veteran said...

Amazing .... the lack of political nous has me stumped. Methinks Mr Turnbull will be doing the numbers.

Abbott scrapped the carbon tax and stopped the boats - good.

Then he had that absurd parental leave scheme (which he has since watered down a bit) then backed down on the doctor co-payment (I think) then knighted the duke - bad.
