Aspiring Prime Minister Abbott described one of his candidates for a seat in the forthcoming election as having sex appeal. I couldn't see it, but that it is no surprise.
Imagine ex Prime Minister Julia Gillard describing a male election candidate as having sex appeal?
Worse still perhaps, what about ex leader of The Greens, Bob Brown, who is gay, describing a male candidate as having sex appeal? Appalled from North Balwyn* would be apoplectic.
What kind of dinosaur is Abbott? A damned dangerous one for women, in my opinion. If you are wealthy farmer, a rich business person, a mining company owner or you live in a marginal, then vote for him if you must, but he does not offer much to rest of Australia.
I don't know who I will vote for. While I am Green and inclined, I don't like their immigration policies, which I do intend reading before I vote, but I don't feel like I have a party to vote for at all. I'm afraid I am very much old style Labor, and while The Greens fulfil some of what the old Labor Party stood for but I have too many issues with them. There is no one for me to vote for. Is there a Hitler running anywhere? Perhaps I will vote for him if he speaks with passion.
