He must be auditioning for a spot in Harper's cabinet; how else do you explain something this stupid?
Abbott claims that his scrapping of the carbon tax was a gigantic gift to the women of Australia.
Well, Tony knows that women are particularly focussed on the household budget, and therefore the $550/year the repeal of the carbon tax will gift the average Aussie household is in fact a gift to women!
That's exactly the kind of non-logic that the Harper gang makes much mileage from. After all, Canada's much bally-hooed campaign to save women and girls is nothing more than a cover story for Canada's policy of subsidizing Monsanto and Dow Chemical and the rest of the usual suspects.
So Tony's double-speak was sure to find eager ears in Canada.
