Tony Abbott P.M. – Knightmares

The swinging voterFrom my stuffed political armchair, I hear the springs boinging like a kangaroo on the run.

Perceptions are funny things and vary  like mad. There are plenty of things that Tax ’em Tony Abbott P.M. is doing which cheese me off.

Nominating Prince Philip for Knighthood in the Order of Australia isn’t really one of them. I’m impressed neutrally on this topic though his timing leaves me a little flat.

I'm a good guy. (Image galleryhip.com)For the record; I don’t believe in royalty. I think it’s a load of cobblers. Having said that, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh is now 93 yrs of age and probably deserves this recognition. Why wasn’t he a king?

Prince Philip sounds like a good guy but I’m curious as to how he can be a patron of over 800 organisations. Sounds impressive, like a friend list you see for some on Facebook.

Prince Charles was made a Knight of the Order of Australia in 1981 and he was only thirty something. Don’t remember a big fuss on that.

Maybe Tones is hoping that putting in a good word for Phil might get him a job in the near future. He might be needing it sooner than he hoped; the Knighthood nomination has backfired well and truly.

Tony Abbott is P.M. and copping it. Fair enough too. He gave plenty to Labour. Now we have leadership calls in ernest and the P.M. is saying he’ll be a good boy and consult his colleagues more than he has. Sounds just like Kevin Rudd days. Just Two Beers Joe Hockey and Malcolm Turnbull both saying we don’t want to repeat Labour’s action’s in removing Kevin Rudd, P.M. They must have been thinking it though.

The P.M. noticeably kept his distance from Queensland during the election campaign. The Lib State Gov’t was in trouble and didn’t need more in the form of the Tony Abbott. Not good for the image.

Now Tony Abbott and his team are being called a one term Government. How things change. One Term Tony. Has a good ring to it.

    • You’re right there Mary. And it sure looks as if he’s in danger of very soon, becoming a memory as P.M. doesn’t it?
      Boy, the Knighthood nomination seems to have been the last straw for many, particularly with the media getting its teeth into it.
