I must say that I am disgusted by Gillard's behaviour with regards to Afghanistan and Abbot's trip there. You don't try and score political points like that. It's just vile.
Assume for a moment it is. All he had to say was he has made arrangements to go at a later time. He can't blame her for the **** storm that erupted from his own poor choice of words. You're living on a different planet if you think politicians don't use troop visits for political point-scoring mate.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
Disappointed that Abbot didn't get his face painted up, commando-style, and let off a few random grenades (not for Parliament, but during his Afghan trip).
Everything that Gillard has done since she has become leader has demonstrated that all she is after is power and she is willing to do anything to keep it, including lowering the standard of political debate even further than before. Her border policies have been awful (indecisive, ineffective and in-compassionate), her pork barreling cringe-worthy and her major flagship policy completely un-costed and logistically nightmarish, without providing demonstrated economic benefits.
The sooner that this government collapses and Gillard is ditched as leader the better. If I was of the Left I would be exceedingly disappointed with Gillard and her seeming inability to formulate any real left wing policy reforms. And from the Right I just cannot see anything that she stands for that couldn't be better delivered by the conservatives.
Gillard responded to questions asked of her by the media. This was never, ever an issue until idiot came out with the jet lag comments.
If you want to see someone completely going unhinged at the fact he didn't get the power he believes he so richly deserves, check out Abbott's behviour since the Indies made their decision. It's been laughable.
Meanwhile today, we find out good old Joe Hockey, the man who would have been Treasurer and who said the Coalition's costings were "audited", didn't actually mean "audited". The accounting firm specifically stated they didn't audit the figures.
Come on mate, be a bit realistic here. Gillard twisted the knife no doubt once Abbott made his gaffe, but it was no more than the stupidity of his comments deserved. He's now doing no more than trying to blame her for his own brain fart.
Don't hold your breath on the government collapsing either, because everything the Libs have done since the decision by the Indies has basically alienated them. Windsor's post- Four Corners interview where he mentioned Abbott has "basically reverted to type" was a pretty instructive comment as to where he sees things atm.

stephen I'm going to let you have a look at your own post now before I respond. All I'm gonna say is that's pretty dire form.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
Yeah but you were probably in the thrall of Kevin Rudd.
You're a good judge.
That comeback wore itself out about 2 months ago Howie. You're going to have to come up with a new line.
Strength of Aussie dollar against the US surely a good thing for Labor?
