Good on him. I've liked his willingness to talk about buying subs from Japan.

Good on him? Well, anyway Abbott retaining the leadership is actually good news for the opposition Labor party who are now likely to retain government in a landslide. The Tory PM is in total denial. Abbott is extremely unpopular and always has been yet he incredibly thinks his government were elected because of him. The fact is they were elected despite him. The Murdoch-led conservative media machine went into overdrive, creating an angry vote against the incumbent government resulting in a win by default for Abbott's Liberal party. But now people, including the right-wingnut media, are just coming to the realisation that Australia's leader is just a gaffe-prone embarrassment. He is Bush Lite. I could elaborate at length but I'll just leave you with my favourite Abbott quote: "No one, however smart, however well-educated, however well experienced, is the suppository of all wisdom." Says it all.
