No point complaining, the Australian people overwhelmingly voted Abbott in.
The Murdoch media was very much against Rudd
Murdoch's best-selling Daily Telegraph tabloid urged readers to "Kick This Mob Out" over a picture of Rudd at Parliament House.
Murdoch hated the NBN, it was competition for his media empire, anyone who doesn't admit the media was against Rudd is naive and ignorant.
Unfortunately, the damage was done a long time ago when Rudd was knifed. The people grew tired of the in fighting and the back stabbing, it wasn't
Rudd they hated, it was the party.
Abbott, is bad news.
Think about this, his entire campaign he made promises that reached the moon and cost billions, but he never told the people where this money would
come from. The entire campaign Rudd was telling Abbott to release his costings, to explain where the money would come from. Every day Abbott stalled,
made excuses, promised the costings would be released in time..
then, with 2 days left, Abbott releases a very vague and incomplete costing and refused to answer any questions about it.
The people obviously didn't care enough about this obvious Abbott reality, they still voted Rudd out.
No one can complain in 3yrs when big business outsources every Australian Job.
When there are tolls on every road, when power companies are making fortunes off high bills, when basic principles like gay marriage are a dream.
In saying all this...
Abbott is not popular. Give it 12 months, when his popularity is around 25%, the Liberals could very well knife him and replace him with Turnball or
Hockey.. and both of them are a breathe of fresh air!
