Greens rebirth Abbott Derangement Syndrome

So unhinged are The Greens that Senator Jordon Steele-John has already expressed faux outrage before former PM Tony Abbott has slid a foot under his new desk to help the UK negotiate trade deals post Brexit.

What a surprise to see the steely focus on identity politics – age, race, wealth and gender – the four least relevant metrics to determine his ability to produce in the role.

As ever, Abbott Derangement Syndrome reigns supreme. That even out of office, The Greens have to howl at the moon with no evidence it is bad for Australia.

Tony Abbott is entitled to a pension post serving as PM. If the Senator has such a bee in his bonnet over the retirement allowance granted to former leaders, perhaps he should propose a policy to overturn it.

Yet to make out that Australian taxpayers are paying him to sell out Australia is just nonsense.

The Brits want someone to negotiate trade deals in a post Brexit world. A former PM is likely to have a few contacts in his Rolodex to be able to expedite execution.

Perhaps the Senator might sound mildly more intelligent if he suggested that Australia is not obliged to accept any proposal made by the UK body run by Abbott. If we choose a duff trade deal with the UK that is 100% on us for poor due diligence, not Mr Abbott.

This is why we are always in amazement that anyone can vote Green. They are so out of touch with reality.

Who could forget the Greens promoting a domestic violence activist who suggested that firefighters go home and beat their wives. Seriously?

When journalists and other politicians with such views retire perhaps they should declare they be held to the exact guidelines they demand of Mr Abbott. We know for sure if Kevin Rudd or Julia Gillard were selected by UK PM Boris Johnson we wouldn’t hear a peep.

How pathetic are my neighbours?

While searching for a WiFi signal, CM discovered one of the neighbours has Abbott Derangement Syndrome! Could they be any more pathetic? No doubt this individual must be proud as punch to see Abbott’s replacement, Zali Steggall, seek to ban single use plastics inside Parliament House! Talk about an empty electorate.

As the old Jewish proverb goes, “before buying a house, first check the neighbours!”

Abbott Derangement Syndrome includes ranting during national mourning

There is a Jewish proverb which says “slander slays three people: the spoken by, the spoken to and the spoken of.”

The media couldn’t help themselves drum up some faux outrage over Tony Abbott’s words on the passing of former PM Bob Hawke.

If Abbott had said nothing he’d be lambasted. If he had crafted the most wonderful prosaic portrait of Hawke with the pen strokes of Jane Austen he would still be hung out to dry. He can’t win. It is more telling of disrespect to Hawke to find any excuse to attack Abbott.

Abbott’s comments were absolutely fine. He openly praised Hawke as one of the best leaders of our time. It says more about those with Abbott Derangement Syndrome to find fault in everything he does.

We get many hate the man. Not even working as a life saver and a volunteer fire fighter cuts him any slack. Scott Morrison should have ignored press calls to have a go at Abbott for his ‘partisan’ words.

Why not take to task Bronwyn Bishop, who on Sky News talked of Hawke’s sometimes inebriated state, womanizing and philandering?

Bob Hawke was simply a wonderful PM who reached across party lines to modernize Australia. A shame the press had to find fault in everything. As a former PM himself, Abbott reserves the rise to express his feelings in his own way without sanction from the PMO.
