This will be the shortest post I ever write:
We have a new Prime Minister. No more Tony Abbott. No more fucking homophobic, misogynistic Tony Abbott!
Now, Malcolm Turnbull, walk your talk with regards marriage equality (because you have been recorded as making sensible, rational comments on the subject) and I might even stop despising everything the Liberals stand for. No, I’m never going to actually vote for your party (Australian Sex Party, then Greens, then Labor if there’s absolutely nobody else), but I might be less violent in my hatred (which has hit an all-time high these past two years).
But, in all honesty, it’s going to take some spectacular effort for you to be worse than Abbott. I’m not expecting you to be particularly good, although you certainly come across as less-extremist right-wing, but you just can’t be as bad as Abbott.
And no, I don’t care that it’s Australia’s fifth PM in five years.
I’m just crossing my fingers and praying that Abbott doesn’t do a Rudd.
(And I know I’m linking to The Age. I know who owns it. I’m just frantically trying to finish a workbook that got delayed due to family stuffs and I don’t have time to search up a better link. Ugh.)
