Dear Tony, your change of heart on Paris treaty is as insincere as it is desperate | Katharine Murphy | Australia news | The Guardian

Abbott told his interlocutor David Speers, because Angus Taylor was now the energy minister, and presumably is not in the grip of EO™.

Good man, Angus.

What is unclear though, is how Angus being a good man with EO™ immunity makes the Paris target any less than it was when Abbott signed up to it, recanted, then clambered back on board it again – but this way lies madness.

Instead of getting frustrated with a performance that could be fairly categorised perhaps as the last stand of the political opportunist, perhaps we should just look on the bright side and celebrate the backflip on the backflip.

Hooray.

Friday’s about face from Abbott shows that political pressure does have an impact.
