JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH: Abbott says “as a married man, I suffer far too much abstinence”

abbottsex2 The very real prospect of Tony Abbott’s election on Saturday offers Australians the opportunity to have a Prime Minister of probably unprecedented frankness and openness.

And while that sounds like a pitch for him, it’s not meant that way.

Sometimes, a little too much candour is unpleasant for those hearing it, as a transcript obtained by the famed VEXNEWS Investigations Unit indicates.

Back in February 2007, he told a shocked and awed Triple J listening audience in a no-holds barred interview on sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll in response to a question “Do you support abstinence?”:

Well as a married man, I suffer far too much abstinence…

It is unknown what his wife Margie thought of this observation.

He was on fire, that interview, as Health minister having very bravely agreed to go on the notoriously left-wing alternative radio station for yoof declaring at one point:

Do I think that kids should grow up in a condom culture? No, I don’t think that’s a very good thing at all.

Even the conservative wing of the VEXNEWS Investigations Unit would rather the little tikes not catch HIV though, if they insist on rubbing nasties.

When pressed by the appalled leftist Triple J host about what he meant by the condom culture, he said:

Well, it means a whole range of things. And, basically, it means behaving responsibly. Of course, Triple J being a Government-funded station would want to make sure that good, wholesome messages like that are going out to people.

Making it clear that while he might be missing out at night-time, he is certainly not lacking a vision splendid for the nation.

  3. His wife looks uncomfortable in the public eye, like the Liberal party launch last week. His daughters seem to do a good job though as an accompaniment to Tony’s campaigning.

  4. Abbott may have not been getting any at home, but judging by the way he walks he must be somebody’s bitch

  11. Ha! Just noticed a paid Google advertisement for Sarah Henderson on your site.

    I wonder what the click through rates are like? Probably quite good due to all the Vexnews perves looking for some vicarious thrills.
