Okay - much as I obviously have an interest in politics and political threads, I have already posted a message regarding keeping the thread on topic.
I will post one more warning - as posts which are personal have been posted after my last reminder to keep things on track.
I will remove anything personal which followed my last warning, and anything which has been reported.
For the record though - for those that haven't heard the "handbag hit squad" term before - it is not one coined by Father - it was coined by Abbott's team, following a period when there was a lot of press regarding his comments on women (think back to when his wife spoke out, or the ousting of Peter Slipper). So therefore for those in doubt as to why that term may be left following cleaning - it was not directed personally to any members here.
I stand corrected Father - the topic of the thread does not encompass anything other than Abbott's plans for the economy, so that's where we'll leave it.
Any discussion re: abortion can be discussed in a new thread.
