Tony Abbott never Promised to be an Adult in charge!

He said the Liberal National Party would be adults!abbottslies
Tony Abbott Denies His Government Ever Promised To Be Adults (The Shovel. December 1, 2013) 🙂 ;

Tony Abbott this morning said that neither he, nor his colleagues, ever claimed to be adults and that any suggestions they had done were simply misquotes from sections of the media.

In a speech to the press gallery Mr Abbott said, “We never promised to be anything other than childish and petty. That was our pinkie promise and we are going to keep that promise. Not the promise that some people thought that we made, or that people like Short Change Electricity Bill Shorten wanted us to make. We are going to keep the promise that we actually made. So suffer”.

When shown footage of Liberal MPs claiming during the election campaign that the ‘adults would be in charge’ should the Coalition be elected, Mr Abbott said “well that’s just semantics and we had our fingers crossed anyway”.

The press conference was brought to a close when Education Minister Christopher Pyne ran up behind Mr Abbott and gave him a wet willy.


Well I must say though, that after a failed search for Tony Abbott’s September 7th ‘acceptance speech,’ I eventually altered my search parameters and found that the Liberals refer to such things as ‘Victory speeches.’ However, I noted that only mere glimpses are revealed, through salvaged transcripts, of Abbott telling the Australian people (Himself more like!), he was an adult and was now in fact, in charge:

One of my favorite laughs:


Mr Abbott pledged a parliament that “discusses the issues, rather than abuses individuals”.

“And I am confident that after just a few weeks of the new parliament – that parliament that diminished our policy and embarrassed our citizens over the last three years – will soon seem like just a bad memory,” Mr Abbott said.

The story surrounding the Abbott/Bishop/Bishop/Pyne…. LNP BS of not answering ANY questions, or the throttling of Labors ability to be able to debate during question time, the fact, no noise is permitted at all when the Liberal Nationals are speaking, is due to the fact that Tony Abbott is unable to actually think or form words if there is any noise. On the other hand, it might be that Bronwyn Bishop is unable to hear her ques from LNP front benches… who can tell!
