Not befitting a "PM" who challenged Mr Putin witha "Shirtfront" and risked hostility with Russia who already supply planes to Indonesia...(stewards enquiry into that Rhodes win"

Beautful work. If only he had shown the same flexibility intellectually! (The former PM's moral development and thought processes seemed to have limited mobility.)

Not too hard to place this on a spectrum of 'gross' to 'distasteful'. No ambiguity however, about the total lack of the Christian values of compassion, justice, respect, values spruiked by ES, but obviously only selectively applicable to the chosen few. Or maybe Ms Katauskas believes that Mr Abbot and those who do not share her obsessively demeaning attitude towards him, are merely cartoons and not really human!

Liz - Tony Abbott was an unworthy PM and an embarrassment to the country. Good riddance. Accurate cartoon depiction.

Oh harsh, Fiona! That's very harsh - but I like it!

Is that the best you can do? Hasn't anything happened in the last month?

Well said Liz and Timothy. Mr. Abbott is no longer P.M.. He should now be free from the often childish, though more often cruel, comments of those who contribute to ES. It is time to move on and ridicule someone else - If you must.
