Tony (Toe Knee) Abbott's boatphone

To be fair to the Libs and Nats, they have defintely won the two-party race to the bottom over the asylum seekers issue.

'Stop the boats!' has become a central mantra of Abbott's campaign.

We'll "stop the boats...!".

This is political dishonesty and fear-mongering at its sleaziest. It's so gross that it unites Whitlam and Fraser, Hawke and Keating in common disgust.

The sneaky old war criminal John Howard was successful with populist fear-mongering over asylum seekers in the post-9-11 2001 election, but I doubt it's working for the Libs nearly so well this time.

Kudos to the makers of this video.
