    perhaps he learnt from his last stint on q&a to actually think before he opens his mouth.

    Is he the same bloke that was on Q and A a while back and seemingly couldn't grasp the fact that 'Go The **** to Sleep' wasn't written for children?

    Tonight at Parliament House, Abbott's speech was typically hokey and partisan. And he neither bowed not curtsied.

    Unfit to lead.

    Today Her Majesty worshipped in Canberra before attending lunch at Yarralumla with a group of 50 extraordinary Australians which she chose herself.

    It was a good do. Not a Tory in sight as they're all ordinary, and I really enjoyed the foie gras. Geoffrey Rush seems a good bloke, Her Majesty was radiant as always, and I really enjoyed catching up with Bart ahead of the Spring Carnival.

    Her Majesty's thoughts on Mr Abbott are both confidential and illuminating.

    She's out to smear all our public heads of the republican movement. If the issue comes up again the media will be showing all these bastards kissing her **** and the monarchists will and **** us over again.

    On the Way Out

    I love how people say, "oh they have a personal following in their electorates, that goes beyond the party divide".

    Oakshot and Windsor have such big egos that I think they actually believed it.

    These electorates are conservative electorates, and broadly speaking the people are outraged that these two sided with Labor.

    Their demise will give me just as much joy as Abbott's thumping win on election night 2011.

    You're out of time for election 2011, unless turnbull challenges in the next couple of weeks.

    On those numbers Windsor will win. Also, on those numbers, neither he nor Oakeshott will go anywhere for two years.
