'One tends to get the type of person who is terribly thrusting and ambitious...'

'Thrusting', eh? I notice Abbott's world view as reflected by his vocabulary hasn't significantly changed in 30 years. Here for your listening pleasure (because it will confirm all your worst fears, and there's always something lushly satisfactory about that) is Tony Abbott, student politician, interviewed at UNE in 1979.

Reckon he's a Ralph Nickleby, do you?
I think the country had better start thinking very quickly about what it might be like to be rogered by Abbott- strictly wham bam thank you maam in the best/worst Victorian tradition and not so much fulfillment but misery, for all the risk.
