The Honorable Member For Warringah11 October 2010
Tony Abbott is highly intelligent – he’s a Rhodes Scholar for heaven’s sake and those scholarships aren’t just dished out willy-nilly.
So why is he so stupid? Why does he keep having to apologise for “the wrong choice of words”. He wasn’t a student of English (he has both Economics and Law degrees from the University of Sydney and an MA in Politics and Philosophy from Oxford) but, come on, he’s been in politics long enough to know that you have to choose your words carefully, every time you open your mouth (one of the many reasons I’d be a lousy politician!).
Does anyone really believe a word he says?
I used to think he was probably quite cunning but I’m quickly coming to the conclusion that the man is a fool. And probably a nasty one, at that.
