Dammit Abbott, it's a rocky horror show

Our wedding to Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Treasurer Joe Hockey turns rocky horror show in the Budget 2014. With Rocco Fazzari and Denis Carnahan.

Dammit Abbott! It’s a horror show!
 

Tony Abbott and co’s selling of the budget is rapidly spinning out of control. 

Tony Abbott and co’s selling of the budget is rapidly spinning out of control.

It’s true that while we debate over what constitutes a lie or when is a wink more than just a wink has taken some of the heat off Tony and Joe, it has inadvertently created its own Frankenstein.

This is one monster that is as ugly as some of the inequalities in the budget.

This week’s video we have deployed the musical expertise of Denis Carnahan and adapted it to animation.

  • When one's predicament is dire and Very Best Friends are scarce, one proven distraction is to pee your pants, everyone will be alerted to your dilemma but only you will be aware of that slow growing warm feeling.

    • Joyce Barnaby said today that Churchill was not recognised fully until much time had passed. Well, all that can be said now, is that with the passing of time, Billy McMahon is no longer the worst Prime Minister of Australia.

  • Abbott's attitude in general astounds and disgusts me. He wears an air of superiority beyond all others. His smirking and sucking in his cheeks at the disclosures of an elderly phone sex worker is yet another example of his misogyny and he has the title Minister for Women??? This budget is hitting the vast majority of voters who, of course are low income earners while he looks after his donors.

    • I am totally speechless with how shocked you are. Why are you shocked? You voted for this to happen... it's as if people didn't know what this man was like LOL Did you just turn on the tv and decide and then cast a vote one day?

    • I just can't believe how this bloke keeps shooting himself in the foot, coming out today saying people must not have aspirations for a good job while his daughter is funded through college by one of his mates is disgusting, he and his dumb political mates from both sides are the ones shutting down any businesses who can offer worthwhile jobs for the young people of this country. Watching this bloke makes me think a Rhodes scholarship must be fairly easy to get.

  • Whatever that comes out of the PM's mouth, expect it to be a lie. The man just makes it harder and harder on himself for anyone to believe him

    • If what ever comes out of the PM's mouth is a lie, what should we believe about his daughters scholarship being won on merit. I have to say I wonder who else was considered for the scholarship given that she "WON" it on merit, (suggesting that someone else was beaten)? What also interest me is why Tony Abbott says that his family should be left alone when it is his government attacking lower paid families and their children. Funny how some people can not see the obvious!

    • @Pragmatic - is it only Abbotts lies, or is it sometimes the person at the other end of his (dual feed) earpiece?
      I want to know exactly why he wears that earpiece during so many face to face interviews when no-one else does - just who is at the other end? Given the last few months, is it because he just isn't capable of being across his own policies, has brain fade or because he really is just a puppet?
      I wonder if they are now giving him instructions on facial expressions.....

    • My favourite Abbott Lie of the week: She won the scholarship on merit! Sadly, this didn't make it to Rocco and Denis' musical revue, but pretty please can you include it next week?

      As an artist, Rocco would appreciate how rare a $60,000 scholarship for a young "artiste" must be. The only art prize I can think of that compares is the Bulgvari Prize. And to think, a young gel with no more than a Band 6 in Visual Art in the 2009 HSC - no State ranking, no invitation to exhibit at Art Express, just a Band 6 (the same result as 1,180 other HSC art students that year), could win one of the richest art prizes in the country!
