To cheer up the mood and for some entertainment, take a look at this amusing video of Bob Katter... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4e8qkBt5JQ
Classic Katter.

ALP ministers now criticising Abbott because he is a volunteer firefighter. I guess Gillard sitting on her fat **** eating Tim Tams is better.

EDIT: The coward ministers now deleted their tweets.

Here's a comparison of the two leaders...

ACF, I understand you're a right-winger, but I'm not having links to communism, 'stopping the boats' and religious/family choices as reasons to bash Julia/promote Abbott.

I consider myself a leftist, but keep your pants on, I'm no fan of Labor either. Two-party systems where they're both equally bad is so deflating

Some of those arguments used are horrific. How is advocating twinning Melbourne with Leningrad relevant at all? I didn't know twinned cities did anything at all except promote tourism to each other. Dallas could twin itself with Beijing and nobody would suddenly start thinking that Texas is going to be overrun with communists posing as cultural attaches.

Links to communism and her failure on immigration are areas she should be taunted about.

She wanted to have an official alliance with communist Russia through connecting Leningrad and abandoning the ANZUS treaty? That is just great

Yes, he does. Something Julia, Wayne and Joe Hockey don't have. Thank god we have Tony as Opposition leader because Turncoat (aka Turnbull) would have let us have one and we would have had many more years of Labor than we are going to have if Turncoat was still leader.

Vaclav Klaus' term as President is finally over and the centre-right in the Czech republic has had a disastrous result. Shame he has gone considering I agree with his views on free-market economics, global warming and euroskepticism.
