The Libs apparently deleted Abbott's comments about Slipper from their site. So someone grabbed them again from archive.org (which hopefully wont get put on the list of banned sites).

But I'm sure it's just an honest mistake and bad timing, right? :|
Hypocrites and thieves all.
As someone said: Nothing in politics is accidental. This little fuss has certainly swept Shorten's recent bad publicity off the front pages.
This is the essence of the issue. Abbott will have to sack her. It's all part of the game, but as the Zen Master said 'All that's left to us is to have a good laugh'.
Laughing so much I'm almost crying.
and you don't even have to be on Team Australia to travel the world.
I take solace in the fact that helicopters are very unsafe.
Federal police are refusing to investigate this matter despite numerous complaints.
I'm not saying they're now a political arm of the Government.
...that officially happened after the Martin Place Siege investigation findings were released.
The MSM is really winding up:
Funny, if I make an error of judgement and accidentally spend money I'm not entitled to I'd probably end up in court.
It seems if you're in the political 'elite' (ie Egregious Liars Into Thieving Everything) , the worst that happens is you're banished from Court.
What happened to Hockey after that "failed the sniff test" comment? Has he made any comment since?
The worrying thing about this, if it goes on too long without disappearing, is that Abbott may go beyond the recent record 10 flag appearance and announce some terrorist incident.
Tony Abbott, 2012. Watch this, its less than 60 seconds:
Someone in the comments points out that you should look at the difference in body language.
In 2012 he's looking confidently straight into the camera. In 2015, he wont look into the camera, he wont look at the person asking the question, he just kind of looks down and then away into the distance into the sun.
It's been so cold I saw a politician with his hands in his own pockets.
- joke the LDP posted on Facebook about the weather recently :lol:
Like a helicopter shot out of the sky?

"Bronwyn's admitted it was probably an error of judgement and she's repaid the money. She has my confidence."
One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he
asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money
from you, I'm doing community service this week.'
The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a
'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill,
the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing
community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank
you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Member of Parliament came in for a haircut, and when he went to
pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from
you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Parliament
was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen
Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.
Hells ..bells! When we have a political JOTD..things must be coming to a head. This is Silver Satckers,after all.
Where (some) folks come together to discuss Precious Metals...and argue the merits .of the metals..sell and buy..bemoan their good (and bad) deals

We all know the system is corrupt..(example..Bob Hawke..who did very well from his tenure as PM) is a multi millionaire ..resident of Point Piper...he took care of himself.Just as Ms Bishop is doing. Get over the system..it is GLOBAL!
Invent another paradigm ..if you can.
