Tony Abbott Challenges Himself For Liberal Leadership

Politics By The Skewer

Tony Abbott has put an end to a week of leadership speculation by challenging himself for the position overnight.

“It was a captain’s call,” Mr Abbott said.

“I decided the constant speculation and distraction had to end so I called for nominees around the dinner table last night.”

Mr Abbott said only he and the incumbent nominated.

“Margie and Peta voted and I am thankful to have came out on top.” Mr Abbott said.

Mr Abbott said his first act as the new leader would be to knight his dog and then use a captain’s call to outlaw captain’s picks.
