Today is the 64th birthday of former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
For innovative policy and speaking truths that others wouldn’t speak, I rate him as one of the best Australian Prime Ministers since WW2 hero John Curtin.
A very recent outstanding act of service to Australia from Mr Abbott is his statement condemning police action against peaceful protestors in Melbourne. He described police as being “……. lined up like stormtroopers …….” to stop a peaceful protest by “people who are sick and tired of (lockdown) restrictions which frankly are now becoming absolutely unreasonable”.
It needed to be said. And the public have a right to know who gave the orders and authorisation for the teargas and rubber bullets used by police against citizens exercising their right to free speech.
God bless you and thank you Mr Abbott.
Please stay strong.
