When the morning television hosts turn on you a politician knows he is in trouble. Last week for Tony Abbott it was Karl Stefanovic on Todaytreating him with scant respect. This morning it was Sunrise’s David Koch out to prove that a Port Adelaide man can be tougher than a friend of that rugby loving Alan Jones like Karl. Both interviews would make Liberals squirm as their leader made a botch of trying to appear like an honest man.
The Prime Minister looked and sounded tired and troubled.
Surely it is time to get him out of sight and into his Speedos for rest and recuperation and a little contemplation about what to do and say in the year ahead.
