I'm happy to admit I'm probably wrong, he can't be stupid if he's reached the position he's in. But when you can't be trusted to speak off the cuff or speak in more than 3-word slogans then questions will inevitably get asked. You can't have 3 years worth of conversations as the Prime Minister closely scripted too, surely.

It'll be a glorious result either way.
All the headlines early on suggested the senate could be a nightmare for Abbott but it looks like they'll support his core principles and then throw out his face-saving vote grab policies that I suspect he's not too keen on anyway, giving him the perfect excuse not to implement them. More like a wet dream than a nightmare.
Notes were allowed under the rules of that debate ftr.
If there's one thing I know for sure it's that to ignore or minimise the obvious strengths of your opponent is the absolute best way to ensure said strengths will be strongly brought to bear against you. Labour were too busy eating each other to notice that Abbott was killing them in the street handshake stakes. Abbott is an extremely personable bloke too and I remember feeling genuinely sorry for him when that bloke who everyone thought was his son turned out not to be, mainly because he did genuinely appear gutted about the whole thing. I mean, where do people think the 'real Julia' thing came from? Whatever you think about Abbott the politician, Abbott the man is a stand-up guy and it shows when you compare it to the highly-scripted, tightly-controlled, conniving and largely two-faced ****wits inhabiting the other party right now.
