    1. 'He tells them to truck off'??? Did you just make this quote up? I watched/listened several times and did not hear anything except a squeaky car door with Abbott inside and his lips not moving.

    2. I would much rather a PM that was more interested in doing things than just saying things. By the way, he has already turned two boats around. Apparently, according to Labor and refugee advocates, it was impossible. Guess not!

    3. The boat was so close to Indonesia that it washed up on one of its beaches. What really do you expect Abbott to say to journalists? "Indonesia needs to pull its socks up"?

    4. He said he will talk to the media when he has something to say. If the media wants answers as to the cause of these latest deaths, maybe they should be asking some questions in Indonesia, where the army allegedly drove the refugees to the boat.
    1. It's quite clear that he swears in that clip. If you cannot hear it may I suggest turning up the volume.

    2. As the PM, he should be open to questioning when there has been a tragedy such as this. The attitude that he showed was not one of a great leader, but one of a cowardly man, who cannot think on his feet.

    3. As a previous poster pointed out, I would expect for him to at least offer his condolences, to at least show some compassion.

    4. The media were not asking for the cause of the deaths, but his thoughts on the incident. If he cannot at least string a few sentences together when out in the spot, what kind of "leader" is he? One that is a puppet who's strings are pulled by other men? One who cannot think for himself, so needs his "advisors" to coach him on what to say.

    Pretty poor effort for somebody who is leading this country.

    I believe in this instance they were after a comment from the PM (I heard one asking for his reaction). I don't think they were seeking answers from him as to the cause.

    Still couldn't hear it, despite a very loud volume, nor see his lips move. Let's all make a mountain out of it though

    We obviously expect different things from a leader. I would rather one that doesn't seek out the media at every opportunity to say the same thing over and over, but instead one that is rushing around getting things done.

    I have not seen him say anything as yet about the boats that he has turned around. I can think of a couple (or would it be 3?) of our last PM's that would be gloating in front of the media at every opportunity.

    He has turned 2 boats around despite it being 'impossible', but not a word.
    Good on him. The public will decide his ability based on his actions, not words.

    I think you only hear, see and read what you want to hear, see and read.

    I watched both clips several times and honestly couldn't hear him saying that. I heard a grunt sort of noise.
