Captain caveman

Oh dear. Australia's new opposition leader, Tony Abbott, is revealing his true colours already. In a warning over higher prices from the government's Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, he said:

"What the housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing is that if they get it done commercially it's going to go up in price, and their own power bills when they switch the iron on are going to go up," Mr Abbott said.
I knew that Abbott was a conservative, but I didn't know he was that conservative. This is simply caveman stuff. It would be nice if he could drag himself into even the 20th century...
