The juveniles are in charge

On winning the last election, Tony Abbott declared "the adults are in charge"  - in itself a juvenile remark.

Since then examples of the juvenile attitude of Abbott and many of his front bench have been coming regularly.

The latest include Abbott's aggressive threat to 'shirt front'* Russia's President Putin.

Typical of his hairy-chested, aggressive schoolyard bully-boy persona.

Now we have the idiot Finance Minister Mathias Cormann name-calling, saying Labor leader Bill Shorten is a 'girlie-man'.

Not only is it infantile, it's not even original, having been used regularly by right-wing Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger.

What an embarrassment this lot are.


*'Shirt-fronting' comes from AFL, where it describes the action of one player deliberately crashing chest-on into an opposing player.
