    I also don't think that something not pro-Abbott necessarily must automatically be Labor. I know plenty of people who are usually Liberal voters who cannot stand Abbott. Not to mention the impartial/politically ambivalent/swing voter people who also think he's a goose. A lot of them don't think much of Labor either.

    I can't believe he tried to block the decision because she was chosen for her looks an money!
    How disgusting! He is an absolute animal for not supporting the decision due to her looks. I can't believe how offended I am right now.

    What would Rudd do?

    There are things people dislike about Abbott, but he is always the same man. In a decade as a minister and four years as opposition leader, there are no stories of mistreating staff, no stewardesses in tears.

    There is one episode in Abbott’s life I witnessed but don’t often recount because my own role was so utterly unheroic. In 1977, Abbott and I were lying on the sand at a surf beach some distance out of Melbourne. The surf was way too rough for either of us to go in. Suddenly a woman came up to us screaming. Her son had been pulled out by a rip and was in bad trouble.
    I was a weak swimmer and had I dived in someone would very soon have had to rescue me. Abbott was a strong swimmer and pretty much without hesitation jumped in, swam out to the kid, took hold of him, dragged him down the coastline a bit to get past the rip, and brought him safely to shore. He was not a bit interested in the mother’s thanks, rather a bit disgusted the kid had gone out in such treacherous surf.
    That was 36 years ago. I’ve got no doubt if the incident happened today Abbott’s response would be the same.
    Publicly and privately, he’s the same bloke. His personality may be unreconstructed, but also, it’s not a construct.

    I assume he would do the same as most people would do and help.

    Ridiculous. He may go down as one of the most famous/memorable but not best.
