The Ballad of Brave Sir Abbott

Abbott and Pyne running from the Chamber.

The Ballad of Brave Sir Abbott

Bravely bold Sir Abbott rode forth from Canberra.
He was not afraid to request a suspension of standing orders, O brave Sir Abbott!
He was not at all afraid to loose votes in nasty ways,
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Abbott!

Brave Sir Abbott ran away.
Bravely ran away, away!
When Thomson’s vote reared its ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Abbott turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat,
Bravest of the brave, Sir Abbott!

He is packing it in and packing it up
And sneaking away and buggering up
And chickening out and pissing off to his office,
Yes, bravely he is throwing in the sponge…

(With apologies to Monty Python )

Seriously, this man thinks he is the alternative PM. He tried (and failed) to run out of Parliament like a coward, to prove some point. Sure Australia, vote for this if you want the rest of the world to think we are a joke.  Or stop and think if he runs away from this, what else would he run away from.  Abbott is a coward, nothing more. Only looking for the next media stunt, the next time to wear an orange vest and the next time to tell Clive or Gina what else can I do for you.


In your guts you know Abbott is nuts - the t-shirt

  2. […] bushfires, east coast lows, cyclones  as well not mention DROP BEARS and Yowies. Not to mention Brave Sir Abbott running away from Thomson, who is obviously the scariest for Abbott as well. Leave a comment […]
