Stick an onion in it Tony, you're not making any sense

OPINION:

I AM so sick of this nation's politicians.

Have you ever met a bigger group of overpaid, under-performing, self-contradicting oxygen thieves as this lot?

Deadset.

If they're not rorting the taxpayer on publicly-funded trips they're talking absolute garbage and getting away with it.

Tony Abbott is a walking oxymoron at the moment.

His airing of concerns of political messages being jammed down the throats of people by Macklemore and his marriage equality anthem Same Love are absolutely pathetic.

Mr Abbott has been jetting around the country for months helping drive a deep divide in this country, telling people which way to vote on a federally-funded postal survey.

He's been single-handedly attempting to tread all over equality for some in the name of religion, and some absolutely bizarre causes, which it appears his own family doesn't even agree with.

But it's so typical of these politicians.

One rule to suit their cause, different rules for others.

The citizenship scandal was a brilliant example.

Mass criticism and judgment of the Greens followed revelations two of their key Senators were ineligible.

Near-silence followed when it was revealed the Libs and the Nats both had top-level leaders also in the same boat.

And all the while they spruik the need to crack down on leaners while smirking as they live large on the public purse.
