Will no one rid me of this troublesome Tony?

As dreams go it was rather weird. It was certainly stuck in my mind when I woke up.

Patricia and I had an audience with the Queen and Tony Abbott, the conservative leader of the Opposition in Australia. I think we had come from a  demonstration.  

Abbott was being a pain, speaking over the top of the Queen.

She said that she would like to speak and maybe some tape over Abbott’s mouth might help. We obliged with lots and lots and lots of tape. He sat there obediently as we fumbled around and butchered his face.

Then we did a runner, until I realised no one would be after us because we had done exactly what the Queen had suggested.

By that time we were back at the demo. The comrades wanted photos.

Some of them. Not sure about this Queen stuff. Maybe seeing news about Phillip in hospital and her in Balmoral put her image in my mind.
