Tony Abbott resigns
In a surprise move the beleaguered Prime minister of Australia announced his resignation today.
Tony Abbott released this statement to the press :
Its become clear to me my popularity is the lowest of any prime minister in Australian history. Modern democracy is really a fancy a popularity contest, and without the Murdoch press constantly spruiking and spinning every move I make, my position and lobbyist for various corporations and private interests is untenable. I have feathered my nest quite well in this time is politics but the game is up. It’s time to hand the mask to a new monster currently more palatable to the mindless masses we call the Australian public. I wish the next soulless opportunist to take on the captaincy all the best, as captain of this now sinking ship.
