Many people in Australia don't even realize how smart Tony is! Abbott was Rhodes Scholar at The Queen's College, Oxford. Yes maybe sometimes he's crap with his words, and he talks before he thinks his words through, but hey! Who wants boats, carbon tax, and gay marriage. BRING THE BIG MAN BACK
Tony Abbott's values and beliefs do not conform to modern Australian values of modernity, pluralism and equal protection of the law. He was a bad communicator, and didn't really do anything whilst in Government.
Tony Abbott was a brilliant Opposition Leader, but that's about it. He didn't have a vision for Australia. I'm glad that Malcolm Turnbull is the Leader of the Liberal Party.
