    Particular phrases you like to use

    "By hook or by crook" is one I have picked up recently. Still trying it out. Unsure if it will stick.

    Strikes me as a thoroughly inexpedient phrase, to be perfectly honest.

    Rather keen on "One Nation Conservatism" myself - spotting the exceptions to the concept is a bit like shooting fish in a barrell ie anyone who doesn't pay higher rate tax and a not insignificant number of those who do

    And then Abbott comes out with this:

    Mitchell: These allegations that Australia paid people smugglers to turn back the boats - did it happen or not?
    Abbott: Well, Neil, we don't comment on operational matters but we are determined to ensure that illegal boats don't get to Australia and we will do whatever is reasonably necessary to protect our country from people smuggling and from the effect of this evil and damaging trade that cost lives.
    Mitchell: But surely we wouldn't pay people smugglers, they're criminals?
    Abbott: Well, what we do is we stop the boats by hook or by crook...
    Mitchell: I don't know about the relationship with Indonesia. They're saying today they're shocked by the allegations we paid people smugglers. Are we at least investigating whether it happened?
    Abbott: Neil, I want to say to you and your listeners that I am proud of the work that our border protection agencies have done. I really am proud of the work that they've done and they've been incredibly creative in coming up with a whole range of strategies to break this evil trade ...
    Mitchell: Will we investigate whether it happened?
    Abbott: As I said by hook or by crook we are going to stop the trade, we have stopped the trade, and we will do what we have to do to ensure that it stays stopped.
    Mitchell: Will the Australian Government investigate whether it happened?
    Abbott: The short answer is the Australian Government will do whatever we need to do to keep this evil trade stopped.
    Mitchell: Including paying people smugglers?
    Abbott: We will do whatever we need to do to keep this trade stopped because that's what the public expects...
    Mitchell: Will the Australian Government investigate whether it happened?
    Abbott: Um, Neil, what we are doing is saving life at sea. We are defending our national sovereignty, we are protecting our country from the evil trade of people smuggling and by hook or by crook we will do what is necessary to keep our country safe and to keep this evil trade stopped..."

    Up the boohai - I have invented this saying because I can't remember what the original was, it was the name of some creek in the interior.
