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

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.
