Anything but the economy, stupid

Leigh Sales interviewed Tony Abbott, Australia’s Prime Minister, and a pathetic imitation of a conservative politician, on the 7.30 Report on Wednesday night. This image sums it up. Anything but the economy, stupid, is his new mantra. The stupid part is absolutely correct.


You can watch the whole exposé of idiot boy here.

Given this ‘leader’ can only speak in sound bites and three word slogans and these non-answers are all this unworthy custodian of the capitalist system can come up with, how much longer can idiot boy last? Do capitalists really still support him in all his splendid ignorance and irrelevance?You know it is a bleak time for capital when the alternative on offer is Bill Shorten. That must inspire the one percent with dread.

Can Abbott survive a big swing against his Government in the Canning by-election on 19 September? I doubt it. Given his uselessness for the ruling class, even a moderate swing might be enough of an excuse to dump him.

The two things Abbott has going for him are that the opposition within his party hasn’t coalesced around one candidate, and the Labor Party Opposition has.
