This week, in the paper, Tony Abbott was quoted as saying he and his Government have had “the best fortnight in the life of this Parliament.”

“This is the kind of fortnight Tony Abbott likes to have”

Let’s quickly examine the Abbott Government’s “achievements” over the last two weeks:

  1. Tony Abbott undermined the independence of the ABC and banned his ministers from going on Q&A.
  2. He prevented the Clean Energy Finance Corporation from investing in wind farms.
  3. He also asked the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to stop investing in rooftop solar.
  4. He caused division in his Cabinet by approving a coal mine in the Liverpool Plains.
  5. The OECD rated Australia as the 6th worst in the developed world for women in the ministry.
  6. His Government and Party started tearing itself apart about marriage equality.
  7. His $8.43 GP tax came into effect.
  8. He stopped beef exports to Indonesia

Sadly, this is the kind of fortnight Tony Abbott likes to have . . .
