Lies upon lies from Abbott

Each time Tony Abbott makes a stupid 'captain's call' or announces a divisory policy without talking to his colleagues, he reacts to the inevitable backlash by saying that in future he'll listen, in future he'll consult.

Exactly the same old script was brought out again as a result of his ludicrous, self-indulgent, arrogant decision to give Prince Philip a knighthood.

Just like his pre-election promises - including his promises to his own party if they elected him leader - he's proved without a shadow of doubt that you can't believe a word he says.

He even told us we couldn't believe what he said, back in 2010 in a 7.30 Report programme on ABC. He said that "in the heat of discussion" he sometimes went further with a promise than he should.

I've always believed that in a democracy the most critical thing is for politicians to tell the truth.

Abbott has confirmed with absolute certainty that neither we nor even his own colleagues can believe him. Especially not when he says that he'll change, he'll listen, he'll consult.

His party has to do the right thing and replace him.
