It's hard to imagine a politician more determined to seize power by any means than Tony Abbott. Note that I confine these remarks to the Australian context only. There are plenty of others around the world who are a tad more desperate, Muamar Gaddhafi for one.
Now that it's ever more unlikely that the Independents would switch their support from Labor to the Coalition, Tony Abbott has called on popular revolt against the carbon tax to achieve his aim of becoming the Prime Minister.
I assume that the usual Liberal Party supporters in the media will join the chorus and pretty soon, every bogan from Blacktown to Broadmeadows will all of a sudden become climate experts declaring climate change to be crap.
Poor fella my country.
