Many in this thread must obviously be young people because if you don't believe Australia need Abbott now then you do not understand how sorry the office of priministership had become under Labor.
Abott is a family man, a religious man, a man with values and a man who has proven himself in opposition the last 6 years.
Like former Prime Minister Howard was ridiculed the first time he had a tilt at the leadership position in the late 80's yet became one of our greatest PM's 10 years later. Abott will do the same.
The worst Socialist 2 terms of government we have ever had. Thats a fact those that understand politics will agree with....it was horrendous, a disaster and a mess.

I have to agree with you, perhaps if he lowers welfare payments than more people will have to seriously think about finding work because they wont be able to live off government handouts and then we wont end up with so many people in need of "critical assistance".
Personally, I welcome Abbot & Co. with open arms.
At the end of the Howard years our economy was in one of the best places, something that it only took Rudd & Stooges one term to completely undo. Not to mention that the LNP is more unified or comes across as that and they're mature enough to keep their dirty laundry and infighting out of the public eye.
They proved my chosen profession with a greater budget in relation to GDP which in turn will make it easier for me to do my job.
Their policy on mining and carbon taxes mean that Australia might become a viable entity for people to bro their business back to Australia. Personally, I would rather see us prosper and explore our potential rather than being crippled and left decades behind as the ALP would have.
