Former Prime Minister and self-avowed anti-sniper Tony Abbott has filmed a special feature for ABC TV’s 4 Corners program to show the world that he isn’t undermining his replacement, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Speaking to The (un)Australian, Mr Abbott said: “Look I could be bitter and point out that I won a handy majority at an election as opposed to Malcolm’s one seat win but I’m a team player and won’t do that.
“I also won’t point out that Malcolm’s popularity is on the slide as I don’t believe in opinion polls, instead I will sit back and help out the team. The team that I used to lead, pretty successfully I could say, remember when I stopped the boats and axed the tax, those were the days, the only Royal Commissions we talked about focused on unions, not banks.”
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull could not be reached for comment. However, Opposition leader Bill Shorten said: “For the next few weeks I’ll be on holidays please direct all inquiries to the acting Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.”
