Abbott angered by minister’s ‘gays on boat’ poster

Opposition Leader Tony Abbot has come up in arms against the posters that portray him as racist, homophobic and sexist are in deed ‘vulgar’ but not funny as most people think.

It is alleged that the said posters were exhibited inside the Sydney electorate office that is occupied by the Minister of Health, Tanya Plibersek and they read “I’m threatened by boats and gays. Gays on boats are my worst nightmare. Note to Ladies: Make me a sandwich”

The Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop did not hesitate to express her anger in parliament yesterday towards the statements included in the posters and demanded for an apology from Ms Plibersek. In her statement, the Minister of Health argued that she reckoned that the posters were satire and had ordered for their immediate removal by her staff.

During his interview with Nine Network this morning, Mr Abbott termed the posters as ‘tacky’ and they are not close to being funny. He advised Ms Tanya Plibersek to trade carefully because such statements could ruin the ambitions of Labor party.

In addition to that shadow treasurer, Joe Hockey told the Seven Network that the news concerning the said posters taints the image of politicians and they should therefore be regarded as a wake up call by all politicians who care about their political careers. He concluded that it should not be business as usual for Mr Abbott while people are offended by his remarks.

Environment minister Tony Bourke reckoned that parliament should stick to its initial mandate because that’s what took legislators to parliament. He urged fellow politicians to focus on matters that benefit the entire public in general.
