Some 'memorable' lines from Tony Abbott you may have missed


No, I don't claim to have immersed myself deeply in all of these documents. I'm a politician [Tony Abbott, ABC Lateline interview, 19 November 2009]

unemployment benefit can become a “conscience payment” to people we’d rather not know [Tony Abbott, Jobs Australia Conference, 16 May 2001]

I suppose at this point I should confess, I should own up, if you like, to a certain lack of moral standing [Tony Abbott, Speech to Work for the Dole Community Work Co-ordinators Conference, 26 July 2000]

You could fill a book with the stupid things Abbott has said. I can't imagine what the next three years will be like if Abbott is elected. Violation after violation of human rights is a certainty.

I'm not religious, but I'll pray if that means Rudd wins.

Well, I hope you are praying as we need all the help we can get!
