Things I thought I’d never say: Tony Abbott is Right

January 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

No, really.  Regardless of whether he was misinterpreted, I actually agree with him on two things.  Well, kind of.  Firstly, after the protests regarding his comments on the Tent Embassy, he said that the bodyguards/police took the right action.  I agree with this.  It’s a matter of safety, and not about making sure some ranger broad always looks prim and proper, or whatever people are complaining about.

Now the controversial one.  There shouldn’t be a Tent Embassy outside Parliament house, to represent the Aboriginal people of Australia.

Because, in theory, one shouldn’t be needed.  Hell, by this point it’s a symbol, as opposed to anything else.  Still, wouldn’t it be nice if we lived in a country where everyone was properly represented, and stunts such as it didn’t exist?

Yeah, alright, the Tent Embassy can stay.
