I just got an email from Tony.
Thing is, as much as I love sending emails to politicians, I don’t remember emailing him.
But check out this nonsense:
Thank you for your recent email to the Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott.
As you may be aware, the Prime Minister has called a federal election.
Unfortunately, from Opposition, we do not have the resources to respond to your email in detail during the campaign period, but your concerns will be brought to Tony’s attention and that of the Coalition Team.
After three years of Labor Government failures, Australians now have a choice.
Broken promises, increased cost of living pressures, massive debt, a Budget deficit, waste and mismanagement and new taxes are all placing unnecessary pressures on Australians. Further, Labor have removed a Prime Minister quickly and ruthlessly, ignoring the wishes of Australian voters. But it is the same government with the same problems creating the same mess.
I hope you will get behind Tony in the weeks ahead as he seeks to stand up for Australia and take real action to end the waste, repay the debt, stop the taxes and ease the cost of living pressures on families.

Now, no doubt I would have emailed Tony saying I didn’t like his policies and will never ever vote for him. Yet someone in his office sent me this bullshit. What on earth made them think I’d give a shit about his fucking empty election sentences? How, Tony? How are you going to “ease the cost of living pressures on families”? How? What actual policies do you have to help “ease the cost of living pressures on families”? How are you going to “repay the debt”? And “stop the taxes”? What, all taxes?
