"Tony Abbott continues to hint he will stay in parliament beyond the next federal election, despite a poll finding the majority of his electorate saying he should step down and make way for a new Liberal candidate."
let me say this as politely as I can....
Go away Tony. You have embarrassed the country enough. You're like a national case of herpes.
Take your knights and dames, your 'climate science is crap', your war on the ABC, your war on women, your three word slogans, your broken promises, your support for that vile old bat Bronwyn, and your endless dilettantism with religion. Put your speedos on and do a Harold Holt.
Nothing you say has merit. Just go away. We'll be fine without you.
But as you go. Some highlights:

"While I think men and women are equal, they are also different and I think it's inevitable and I don't think it's a bad thing at all that we always have, say, more women doing things like physiotherapy and an enormous number of women simply doing housework" - 2010
