As I think back on the 18 years of politics, I actually once blogged that Tony Abbott was ok (here) !!
Sorry, sorry, sorry...not a word that Liberals are inclined to embrace (all sorts of observations here about what it means to be sorry)
I actually think he is no longer OK. He is discovering that the electorate does not like his brand of absolutist politics, that the rich should get richer while the poor get poorer is not anything like the Australian 'fair-go'
