Abbott’s not problem solving for the nation he’s problem solving for himself and it really ahs more to do with the game of politics rather than anything else. There is nothing here that hasn’t been pioneered by his Murdoch advisers in America like Roger Ailes the creator of Fox News to attention grab and Abbott has turned to the full package to appeal to the One Nation voters and ALP doubters as he did once before in Australias most historic fear campaign on everything in 2008. He is afterall a one trick pony. ( Old Dog)
