ABBOTTS OLYMPIC BACKFLIP


Leader fails the honour test in Speaker backflip

That is how one of Tony Abbott's frontbenchers summed up his decision to walk away from an agreed parliamentary reform to pair the Speaker's vote.
Abbott will either bring down the government or himself as he presses to destroy the workability of the new parliament. It is an interesting tactical decision.
Abbott is already hiding behind the thin veneer that he is compelled to oppose Speaker pairing for constitutional reasons, despite having previously struck an agreement to do so.
The real reason, however, is political.
Abbott would like the public to believe that constitutional questions about Speaker pairing is a concern that has emerged only now; no one should fall for that one.
He once told us we can't trust Treasury............
TONY ABBOTT'S CHEER SQUAD
"WHAT'S ALL THE FUSS ABOUT HE DID IT BEFORE
AND HE'LL DO IT AGAIN"
