An Abbott in the Lodge “NEVER” Tonyisms

lodge two

Part three by John Lord and Michael Taylor

As he spoke, truth came from the beginning of a smile or was it just a sneer of deception.

“Tonyisms” Or Just Being Nasty

Please note, the afore mentioned was written prior to the Prime Minister’s now famous ‘sexist speech’ and does not include these snippets of Tonyisms.

His dying of shame comment.

His “lack of experience in raising children” comments.

His “make an honest women of herself” comment.

His “no doesn’t mean no” comment.

And more.

1. “Jesus knew that there was a place for everything and it’s not necessarily everyone’s place to come to Australia.”

2. “These people aren’t so much seeking asylum, they’re seeking permanent residency. If they were happy with temporary protection visas, then they might be able to argue better that they were asylum seekers”.

On rights at work:

3. “If we’re honest, most of us would accept that a bad boss is a little bit like a bad father or a bad husband . . . you find that he tends to do more good than harm. He might be a bad boss but at least he’s employing someone while he is in fact a boss”.

On women:

4. “The problem with the Australian practice of abortion is that an objectively grave matter has been reduced to a question of the mother’s convenience”.

5. “I think it would be folly to expect that women will ever dominate or even approach equal representation in a large number of areas simply because their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons”.

6. “I think there does need to be give and take on both sides, and this idea that sex is kind of a woman’s right to absolutely withhold, just as the idea that sex is a man’s right to demand I think they are both they both need to be moderated, so to speak”.

7. “What the housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing is that if they get it done commercially it’s going to go up in price and their own power bills when they switch the iron on are going to go up, every year . . .”

On Julia Gillard:

8. “Gillard won’t lie down and die”.

On climate change:

9. “Climate change is absolute crap”.

10. “If you want to put a price on carbon why not just do it with a simple tax”.

On homosexuality:

11. “I’d probably . . . I feel a bit threatened”.

12. “If you’d asked me for advice I would have said to have – adopt a sort of “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy about all of these things . . . “

On Indigenous Australia:

13. “Now, I know that there are some Aboriginal people who aren’t happy with Australia Day. For them it remains Invasion Day. I think a better view is the view of Noel Pearson, who has said that Aboriginal people have much to celebrate in this country’s British Heritage”.

14. ‘”Western civilisation came to this country in 1788 and I’m proud of that . . .”

15. “There may not be a great job for them but whatever there is, they just have to do it, and if it’s picking up rubbish around the community, it just has to be done”.

On Nicola Roxon:

16: “That’s bullshit. You’re being deliberately unpleasant. I suppose you can’t help yourself, can you?”

I could go on. History is filled with examples of how low this man is; of how nasty he is.

I fear that we may not yet have seen the full extent of his nastiness. We might have to wait – God forbid – for the day he ever becomes Prime Minister.

It will be nasty for all of us.

In part four. Future Court Appearances.

  1. Shudder!! No wonder this cretin is micro-managed. Tony Abbott’s real thoughts are frightening.

  2. Can not all these statements and YouTube with Abbotts statements be made into an Advertisement for the Labor Party s Election campaign as most people seem to have very short memories of his unbalanced view of people and life. Thank you again John .Terrific article as usual. I am still very upset about Julia.Abbott and the Media have a lot to answer for. Also Hockey and the Ashby affair . When are the LNP going to be called to account.

  3. Some disturbing comments there, although not all seem to be all that nasty. And nothing about him torturing puppies – you promised! I’m sure there are plenty of nasty bites from politicians across the chamber as well – any chance of publishing those?

  4. “I’m sure there are plenty of nasty bites from politicians across the chamber as well – any chance of publishing those?”

    We are talking leaders so it would have to be from Gillard or Rudd and I cannot recall either of them, nor Turnbull when he was leader, ever saying something as despicable as Abbott, who has a long history of it. If he weren’t being so carefully micro-managed as he is now, as revealed by Liz Hayes and others, I’m sure he would have let loose with a lot more and maybe worse.

    Then there’s Abbott’s nasty sniping across the floor that’s been mentioned by some in the chamber. Always only just audible enough for Gillard or the front row to hear but not loud enough for the chamber mics to pick up. The same goes for the tactic of the opposition deliberately standing up in front of the cameras to block her out whenever Gillard was speaking on the floor.

    And if you want nastiness then there are few in the chamber that can surpass Mirabella. Both Windsor and Oakshot have stated the thing they won’t regret in leaving parliament is not seeing her again and leaving her nastiness behind.

    There certain books down the track will be very revelatory and I’m certain extremely uncomplimentary of the Coalition and certain Coalition members in particular.

  5. Sorry.

    “Their certain books..” not “There”.

  6. Very well written, all about Mr Abbott, how come we not see these things at least duplicated in the media, but alas we know why. It would be very disturbing for most people if he gets in the lodge, (pity the neighbors) A very good friend of mine mentioned something to me, there has been talk around the camp about Abbott and a few of his cohorts in Parliament having something to do with that strange religion, if you can call it that, Scientology, but maybe it’s a rumour , I don’t know….thanking you

  7. ….. and you missed “Tony on turning back the boats”.

    This is my cartoon on it…



  8. Brilliant, Mick. Love it. 🙂

  9. Yes I had forgotten that.

  10. Is it just me or did I hear Joe Hocket on SBS a coupla nights back, while referring to the Kokoda experience with KR I think, saying “sorry guys, I should have drowned him when I had the chance”
    What sort of grub is this clown! How low can this mob stoop??????
    And now we have the media adding words to KR’s so his comment that the Idonesians will be upset by Julie Bishop’s comment, saying he said “armed” conflict??? Where will this all stop???

  11. Berny, it was damn low, wasn’t it? Absolutely disgraceful.

  12. You are correct, Berny. Joe Hockey apparently made that “joke” to loud cheers & clapping from the doting audience at a Liberal gathering. Therese Rein, who has also made the Kokoda Track trek, was not impressed with Joe saying this as she felt such a statement was against the spirit of the Kokoda experience, which it is.

  13. Yes I watched all that. They have a peculiar sense of humor.

  14. Liealot has been allowed, even encouraged, to behave like the quintessential school bully by at least one of his adoring fans the execrable Alan Jones.

    I believe that most of the Liars party is cut from the same nasty cloth. If Rudd does lead the ALP to victory, I for one, will be sitting at the guillotine knitting with Julia Gillard as the tumbrils arrive and their repulsive heads are severed from their putrid bodies.
