  1. I just don’t trust this guy. Something about him that reminds me of David Cameron, who I also don’t trust.

    Tony Abbott and team, are a disgrace!! They attack all those who dare question the dictatorial ways of this Government. Is this Australia? Wake up everyone this Government is using scare mongering tactics to get re-elected and doing untold damage along the way. We should be asking why after all the billions of dollars that have been poured into security why aren’t Australians safe? Who is not doing their job in Government and related agencies? Is the money being well spent?
    This Government should stop fear-mongering, and do their bloody job properly using the taxes of the Australian people!!
