Dear Aussie Friends,

Dear Aussie Friends,
Thanks to you when John Oliver ran this bit about Tony Abbot last night I already knew all about him. My wife....who studiously avoids message boards... couldn't believe what a schmuck he was.

I hope you can play the video.

As always. It isn't the leader of the country that makes the policies. Agree that TA is about as bad as we can get for a mouth piece. And here I was thinking Gillard and Rudd were better at channelling Bush

RE: Dear Aussie Friends,
Cherry picking clips you can make anyone look like that, plus most of it was filmed when he wasn't even Prime Minister like when he said "shit happens". That's an example of Abbott talking like every day Australians and less like a PC drone / politician.

The WIN/Gallup End of Year Survey 2013 found the US was perceived to be the greatest threat to world peace by a huge margin, with 24% of respondents fearful of the US followed by: 8% for Pakistan, and 6% for China. This was followed by 5% each for: Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, North Korea. -LINK

You're right there Daniel. So the joke is on the Americans. I think any one would wink at a supposed "telephone Sex Worker" calling into a radio station. Oi vey! That was blown all out of proportion.
