Australian Liberal MP's have 24 hours to decide whether Tony Abbott should remain Prime Minister

Here's a Reddit comment correctly summing up why Abbott being ousted would be a glorious day for all mankind.

johnnywalkah

We currently have an ultra-right wing Prime Minister who has done some really fucking shitty things. The most recent of which was giving an Australian "Knighthood" to Prince Philip. Knights and Dames, something this prime minister reintroduced last year without even consulting his party. The first one he names in what is meant to be the highest honour you can receive in Australia is to a fucking royal prince of England.
The Liberal Party is very finely split between two major groups and this was evident in their previous leadership spill in 2009 while they were still in opposition. Tony Abbott, current PM, won that spill by 1 vote, over the former leader Malcolm Turnbull. Malcolm Turnbull in 1999 initiated a referendum on Australia seceding from the monarchy and becoming a republic (didn't pass obviously).
On one hand you have an republican neoliberal who believes in climate change and has many other principles closer to the left and then this crazy religious monarch devotee who denies climate change and has made significant cuts to science research in Australia. He also MADE HIMSELF Minister for Women, despite being a notorious misogynist. Our former and first female PM was treated like absolute shit, especially by Tony Abbott, no respect for her what so ever. One day she stood up in parliament and spent 15 minutes ripping him to shreds for how much of a misogynist he was.
OVERALL, the party has been on an Ultra-Right path since it's former reigning leader, PM John Howard. He was G. Bushes buddy during the initiation of the war. To drive this point home further still, the Liberal PM prior to John Howard, Malcolm Fraser, had thought the party had lost it's way so badly that he supported a senator for the GREENS at the last federal election.


Holy hot damn, Australia needs this man gone.

This man also wanted to dredge mud near the Great Barrier Reef in order to create an oil-mining platform. The piece of shit needs to become irrelevant yesterday.

Is it because of the Australian reef thing.

Well, also that he pretty much took a massive ax to the environmental programs and science funding that he believes promotes a global warming agenda. He's a moron.

Ah yes, I'd forgotten what he did to Australia's broadband.

 

Pretty much everyone was due to get 1Gbps by 2021.

 

He didn't like that, of course, so only 20% of people will get it now.

O.o I didn't even know this. That's almost as bad as Comcast wasting $200 billion meant for infrastructure.

What, only the rich get it, or only people in a specific region?

This isn't just moronic— this is straight up sadistic. When the timeline speaks of Crimes Against Nature trials, it's talking about people like Abbott.

A very fine way to put it.

 

I'm sorry lads, but he stayed put, a great shame has fallen on our nation.
