just think you ****s are making this out to be worse than it is, imo foreign policy and abbott's work overseas has probably been the strength of their tenure so far
just because we're critiquing a guy who basically said if you support Scottish independence you support the terrorists

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
i was thinking more along the you guys being ****s line
I don't think that Tony Abbot's comments are outrageous at all. In fact, for all the fuss that Alex Salmond has created it seems like that he is the knee-jerk politician prone to gaff like hyperbole. However, I wouldn't expect much different from a leader of insular minded people contemplating a vote in favour of reverse racism.Mr Abbott told the Times: "What the Scots do is a matter for the Scots and not for a moment do I presume to tell Scottish voters which way they should vote.
"But as a friend of Britain, as an observer from afar, it's hard to see how the world would be helped by an independent Scotland.
"I think that the people who would like to see the break-up of the United Kingdom are not the friends of justice, the friends of freedom, and the countries that would cheer at the prospect... are not the countries whose company one would like to keep."
BBC News - Scottish independence: Australian PM Tony Abbott's comments 'offensive'
What appears clear from the campaign is that the vote to Leave was as much a statement about the country's national identity, and all that involves, as it was about its economic and political future.
i think the "none of your ****ing business" thing covers why this is out of line
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
no it's the "I think that the people who would like to see the break-up of the United Kingdom are not the friends of justice, the friends of freedom, and the countries that would cheer at the prospect... are not the countries whose company one would like to keep." thing.
DONT YOU HANG AROUND THOSE CATALANS
Don't get me started on those Americans! Pesky buggers wanting their own independence. What do they think they are? A separate people? Pah! Everyone knows they're British through and through, and will remain so forever. An ocean cannot challenge the supremacy of the British identity!
I've always said Dan is a good ole Welsh boi
