An Open Letter to Tony Abbott

Flea Tony AbbottDear Tony Abbott,

I will try to keep this letter brief as I know you have a short attention span and since you’ve never responded to my previous correspondence, I can only guess it was because they were longer than your brain capacity could absorb. The main topic of this letter is to let you know that I think you’re an opportunistic, petty, vindictive creep and that you’re running the country as if you would like to imagine that all Australians are equally as petty and vindictive as you. But we’re not. And you’re not going to win your soon to be announced election because we’re better than that.

Over the last 24 hours, Barack Obama, the greatest President America has ever had and possibly the best leader the world has ever seen, has once again shown what it is to be a visionary, compassionate, highly intelligent, gracious, composed and dignified statesman. He sang Amazing Grace at the funeral of Charleston murder victim Rev. Clementa Pinckney as if it was the most natural thing in the world for him to lead the chorus. He celebrated the decision by the US Supreme Court to recognise the constitutional legality of gay marriage by tweeting with hashtag #LoveWins. Obama is a giant of our world, whether you agree with his politics or not. And next to him, your pettiness, your aggression, your predilection for the path of least residence to the lowest common denominator makes you a meaningless flea. A blip that will be forgotten by history as a negative, sloganeering, fear-inducing, mean spirited low point of Australia’s history.

In the last 24 hours, you and your government have shown your true colours. With three terrorism attacks overseas in France, Kuwait and Tunisia, the pleasure in your eyes, the excitement at having a scare mechanism, the opportunity for you to use these events politically, make me feel ill. You’ve said the death cult is coming for Australians. You’re ramping up the rhetoric on threat levels which have absolutely no grounding in reality. You’re using the deaths of innocent people at the hands of barbaric, violent, evil, yet distant, criminals to further your own political cause. If you can’t see how low it is that you enjoy, and take pleasure out of these opportunities to be a scaremonger, let me tell you, it’s unedifying to the extreme. We know you’re only talking about national security because you’ve comprehensively failed to deliver vision, policies, negotiation, competency and functional government in any policy area so far in your dysfunctional term as Prime Minister. You therefore rely on plane crashes, on sieges carried out by mentally ill lone-wolves, and on the tragedies of people in far-away places to make yourself feel better about yourself. To keep your flag collection multiplying. For opportunistic photo stunts. Petty. Vindictive. Creepy.

And of course, everything you do, everything you have ever done in opposition and seamlessly into government is just about wrecking progressive policies with your negative ‘always on’ election campaign. We hear this morning that you’ve already produced negative attack ads about Bill Shorten. Is Shorten the first thing you think about when you wake up? I bet he is. You are the Prime Minister of arguably the best country in the world and all you care about is bashing your political rivals. Of giving jobs to your boys. You want to unpick every good progressive policy this country has ever delivered and take us back to a yesterday that none of us are interested in revisiting. Wrecking health and education funding. Destroying technological advancement. Wrecking environmental policy. Wrecking whole industries and destroying thousands of jobs. Depressing consumer confidence and in turn destroying economic growth. Wrecking social security. Dog whistling about asylum seekers while they are treated in detention centres no better than captives of the ISIS ‘death cult’. Attacking the union movement. Your nasty little thought bubbles on user-pays public education and wielding your wrecking ball into highly successful industry super funds are just the latest of the daily onslaught of terror you wreck on ordinary Australians. And why do you do it? For the same reason as a dog licks his balls. Because he can.

I dare you to go to an early election Tony Abbott. I dare you to believe that Australia wants to give you another chance to do even more damage to the fabric of our community. While you use national security as your play thing, we can see what you’re trying to do. Your leaked memo made that very clear. And when I compare you, the petty, vindictive, creepy flea, to the likes of Barack Obama, I want to cry with frustration. The sooner you give me and the rest of Australia the chance to vote you out, the better.

Yours sincerely
Victoria Rollison

  1. Tory Tony only exists to serve the very rich Victoria, he doesn’t care about you or me its Gina and Jamie he cares about. He is betting that the Australian apathy will see him through on his mission to turn Australia into a carbon copy of the United States of America, or as some people call it mistakenly ‘America.’

  2. You’ve said everything I’d like to say. The rage and frustration with which I’m forced to watch TA play political tiddleywinks is almost overwhelming. He has no understanding of Australia or Australians, and what is worse, no interest in anything beyond his own political stardom and the continuing financial benefit of his own backers.
    But unless the Labour Party gets its act together, he could win the next election. That is what really, really terrifies me.

    Thank You Victoria. Can you believe: on the ABC The Drum website is an article by Barrie Cassidy titled “The old Tony Abbott is back and going strong … On top of his game”. And yet Cassidy is meant to be a top reporter, host of Insiders. Little wonder I abandoned watching it … Once again, Victoria, Thank You for your expressed outrage (pity that Bill Shorten so often joins in Abbott’s toxic moves).

    • Old man from the sea. says:

      Yes a big write up on Abbott from Barry and I will wait and see what the next couple of polls will have to say about Captain Abbott and his fix it kids.

  4. I could not have put it better myself. I feel so angry, embarrassed, worried and depressed by these people. The election cannot come soon enough for me.

  5. eroticmoustache says:

    I see you wrote another letter to yourself. Well done. Hope it makes you happy.

    • Allan Wilson says:

      “eroticmoustache” …(sic)…..The fact that in today’s Australia, perceptive and thoughtful Citizens’ efforts at calling-out their pathocratic incompetent Prime Minister over his blighted (and Nation-Blighting) actions and utterances can be described by the pathocrats’ partisans (such as yourself) as “…writing another letter to yourself”… causes me more apprehension than all the Islamic Fundamentalists whose barbarities feed this man’s (and his acolytes’) hunger for a rising tide of fear-driven acquiescence among the populace to facilitate the incumbent pathocracy’s imposintion of political, fiscal, and social regression upon our society. (The Enemy Within outnumber the Enemies at our Gates).

  6. Geoff Geyer says:

    Abbott is the insanity we got because of the low life spineless,gutless cowards of the Main Stream Media. Keep up the great work Victoria.

  7. We also got abbott insanity because of the extreme malfunction of the ALP in their last term of government. And if they dont get themselves a decent leader and start behaving like a viable opposition then we will get more of this hideous, nasty joke for a government. It would be alright if the CLP were polling at 12% but they’re not. Half the country is with them. That’s what’s truly horrifying.

  8. P.s. thanks for the letter Victoria. I agree with all of it except im not so sure that he will lose the next election.

  9. Top letter! Couldn’t haver said it better myself! In My Name you can berate him to hell! Im no longer a religious person but I do recall the bible saying that in the last days Satan will be sent into the world to do his dastardly deeds! He fits the bill!

  10. A Rees says:

    What she said!

  11. Abbott is indeed scary. Right from the start I felt he was the worst type of “boy boy” who likes playing “war games”…. if you know what I mean.

  12. Anna V Savelesky says:

    Hey Sir Abbott sounds like some of our congressmen. That’s why many of us love Mr Obama and cry out in grief at the others. All tarred with the same brush as Sir Abbott. So sorry for you. Vote the Rascal out!!
    PS. I can comment because I was born in Sydney 72 years ago.

    Great letter Victoria.

    l really do feel that Australia is under attack and we are backing a oligarchy.We have adopted terrorist ways against certain sections of the community and legitimate organisations. Our current policies divide our nation rather than unite.The Asian region, in which we live,is subjected to policies that provoke our neighbors rather than include and respect.
    The conservatives(Liberals) are the people who we should fear most, home grown and nasty.
    Its lucky on our side we respect democracy,freedom ,truth and natural justice and will never support the views of far right maniacs like the current Federal government with their fear mongering ways as a true reflection of the Australian people…………..bring on the election and lets vote them out

    Obama was a better president than Lincoln, Washington and FDR?
    Possibly better than Churchill?
    I don’t even know where to begin…

    The most disturbing thing is that the Liberal party delude themselves that they won the federal election in 2013, Labor lost it.

    Another disturbing thing is the number of aussies who say that they would vote for Turnbull if he was leading Liberal… He was among the Liberal party that supported the inhumane 2014 budget handed down by the worst treasurer in australia’s history.

    The current personnel in the Liberal party are all antipathic to anyone in this country who doesn’t have secure employment, people with disabilities and young university graduates who are still being demonised because there aren’t enough jobs to go around but plenty of big businesses being granted 457 visas to bring workers in from overseas to undercut our kids on wages.

    May commonsense prevail in the next federal election, it was flushed down the toilet during the last one.
