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.
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”.
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”.
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.
