Tony Abbott ist jetzt Premierminister von Australien. Von jeher ist er dafür bekannt die schäbigsten Dinge zu sagen und dabei nicht einmal so rot zu werden wie seine Badehose. In den letzten Jahren war ich mehr als einmal sprachlos, ob der ganzen Hässlichkeiten, die in seinem Kopf umherschwirren. Hier einige seiner besten Weisheiten.
Zum Thema Syrien
It’s not goodies versus baddies, it’s baddies versus baddies. Quelle.
Zum Thema Einwanderung
Jesus knew that there was a place for everything and it’s not necessarily everyone’s place to come to Australia. Quelle.
These people aren’t so much seeking asylum, they’re seeking permanent residency. If they were happy with temporary protection visas, then they might be able to argue better that they were asylum seekers. Quelle.
Zum Thema Ureinwohner

Western civilisation came to this country in 1788 and I’m proud of that … Quelle.

I think there does need to be give and take on both sides, and this idea that sex is kind of a woman’s right to absolutely withhold, just as the idea that sex is a man’s right to demand I think they are both they both need to be moderated, so to speak. Quelle.
Zum Thema Homosexualität
I’d probably … I feel a bit threatened. Quelle.
If you’d asked me for advice I would have said to have – adopt a sort of “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy about all of these things … Quelle.
