Dear Tassie, for 28 years we put up with former Senator Eric Abetz in the federal senate and now he wants a turn in your state legislature?
Enough is enough, is enough, is…
What the f*ck is he going to achieve now he couldn’t get done in 28 years?
Ok – you caught us! 😁 It was a rhetorical question. We know he achieved SFA. Almost three decades of zero, zip, zilch, nada… other than demonising LGBTQIA+ Aussies with slippery slopes and well-lubricated hypotheticals.
Abetz began yelling at clouds late last century and did little else since.
But the Libs finally caught on in time for the 2022 election and tried to ease him out.
Since then, he’s resembled nothing so much as those dreadful flickering images of the last Tasmanian Tiger, prowling its bleak confinement and forlornly contemplating extinction.
But now former Senator Eric Abetz glimpses an opportunity to remain unproductive into his pensionable years.
Unlike Abetz, the Tasmanian Liberal Party inclines to a somewhat liberal bent and the former senator no doubt senses an opportunity to impose a more conservative agenda over the state party.
Hey, hey, hey! It’s back to the fifties with Uncle Eric!
We love you, Tassie. And we forgive you the odd crackpot. After all, some of us live in Queensland. But all things must come to an end and the time has come for Uncle Eric to retire and yell at clouds on his own dime.
If he couldn’t do it in 28 years, he ain’t gonna do it now.
Don’t let the door, blah blah blah…
