Daft Coalition policy 8: Slagging former Australian Government in the US

Prior to the recent Federal election Tony Abbott bragged of his extended personal experience and readiness to assume power.  He is revealing himself to be a total clot by slagging the former Australian Government while visiting the US.  His combative rhetoric could, at worst, damage US-Australian links but will never be a positive.  At best the US will be cautious in dealing with a loud-mouth.  Tony you are not telling opportunistic lies in Australia now (re climate, the dire debt situation, daft mining tax and carbon pricing attitudes). You are dealing with a foreign government which will have working and personal relationships with members of the former Australian government.  Not helping Australia at all.

    You can find the whole interview in printable form here. Abbott’s last remarks are worth quoting in full:

    So you believe the former government was doing a lot of things that were bad for the country?

    I thought it was the most incompetent and untrustworthy government in modern Australian history.

    They made a whole lot of commitments, which they scandalously failed to honor. They did a lot of things that were scandalously wasteful and the actual conduct of government was a circus. They were untrustworthy in terms of the carbon tax. They were incompetent in terms of the national broadband network. They were a scandal when it came to their own internal disunity. They made a whole lot of grubby deals in order to try and perpetuate themselves in power.  It was an embarrassing spectacle, and I think Australians are relieved they are gone.

    Perhaps over-optimistically, I’m saving that quote for after the next Federal Election in 2016.
