    Even tony abbott is calling the manus island facility a camp. Very telling.

    I don't see the problem calling it a camp? What is the problem? Aren't their asylum seeker camps all over the world?

    Yeah, given they see this as a "war", then Manus can legitimately be seen as a kind of POW camp.

    No one can complain that the then Abbott opposition did not fully flag their intentions and approach in the run-up to the election, and that's what people voted for.

    I wouldn't be so sure, Father . Expect a serious case of "buyer's regret" at the next election.

    Abbott will do one term. And I find it interesting when people say Abbott gets blamed for everything - considering that is the constant tactics of the LP. Everything is from the ALP, they have became the scapegoat. As a rampant leftie I didn't support everything the previous govt did. But geez. I feel like the Abbott govt is in the playground with "I know you are but what am I?". Are these people adults or a bunch of man-children (and women) that think the public is stupid enough to swallow this tripe?

    I know you aren't a leftie It's just super frustrating how blind so many seem to be to the pretty overt childish tactics.

    I wouldn't want to play Nostradamus on this. It depends on a number of factors.

    Politically: Can Abbott keep the mad dogs like Cory Bernadi in their kennels? Can Shorten craft a credible alternative policy package?

    Economically: Abbott doesn't have the Magic Pudding that Howard-Costello used to feed the greed of middle-class voters. So how are they going to sweeten the many bitter pills that Hockey and others are preparing to prescribe?

    No... There's plenty of other reasons why he is a knob.

    My God. I think I just agreed with everything you said. I think they appeal to the extremely conservative voters who like to see the poor get nothing bc they are just lazy sods living off welfare, the dirty job stealing boat people sent back, and homosexuals without the right to marry. In short, the pay off is more of a philosophical, belief based pay off, rather than a tangible one.

    And for the record, Howard, who I never liked, was a far better leader in every respect than Abbott.
