Tony Abbot is an idiot – by Kara Jensen-Mackinnon
People may or may not recall the article I wrote in which I expressed my angst toward the backward conservative men who are in line to run this country.
To further reiterate and underline my point, I quote a recent television segment in which Tony Abbott who appears in an ironing house, states:
“What housewives need to understand while they’re doing the ironing is that if they get it done commercially it’s going to go up in price, and their own power bills are going to go up every year when they switch the iron off.”
His offsider quickly whispered in his ear which I imagine would have been something like “Tony, you idiot you can’t say that… it’s not the 1930s anymore”
And he quickly said, “and house-husbands too”.
Though for me this was too little too late. Are these the sorts of conservative views we want hindering the progression of our nation?
Tony Abbott is also on record saying in a recent interview that women should regard their virginity as ‘a gift’ that should not be given away lightly.
As we enter this new decade with fresh ideas and forward thinking leaders at the helm, we should really think seriously about cutting the weak individuals that are holding us back.
