There is much to be said for an emissions trading scheme. It was, after all, the mechanism for emission reduction ultimately chosen by the Howard government.
Abbott quotes
When you are challenging the young, they can come back at you with language of tremendous power and they are no respecters of sacred cows, you know, the young. There's nothing politically correct about the average young Australian when it comes to use of language.
Abbott
I am, as you know, hugely unconvinced by the so-called settled science on climate change.




Abbott Tony quotes
There may not be a great job for [aboriginal people] but whatever there is, they just have to do it... And if it's picking up rubbish around the community, it just has to be done."
Abbott Tony
Jesus knew that there was a place for everything and itís not necessarily everyoneís place to come to Australia.
Tony Abbott quotes
WorkChoices is dead, it's buried, it's cremated.
Tony Abbott
I want to make it clear that I do not judge or condemn any woman who has had an abortion, but every abortion is a tragedy and up to 100,000 abortions a year is this generation's legacy of unutterable shame.
Abbott Tony quotes
I think there does need to be give and take on both sides, and this idea that sex is kind of a womanís right to absolutely withhold, just as the idea that sex is a manís right to demand I think they are both they both need to be moderated, so to speak.
Abbott
There are essentially two types of conservative: those who fear change and instinctively resist it, and those who respect the society that's made them and want the future to reflect the best aspects of the past.
Abbott Tony
"The media is not an arm of government, and no government should ever try to make it so."
Tony Abbott
The argument [behind climate change] is absolute crap. However, the politics of this are tough for us. Eighty per cent of people believe climate change is a real and present danger




Tony Abbott quotes
If weíre honest, most of us would accept that a bad boss is a little bit like a bad father or a bad husband Ö you find that he tends to do more good than harm. He might be a bad boss but at least heís employing someone while he is in fact a boss.
Tony Abbott
Victory is within our ready grasp...We are in reach of a famous victory
Abbott quotes
Abortion is the easy way out. Itís hardly surprising that people should choose the most convenient exit from awkward situations.
Abbott Tony
I think I would say to my daughters if they were to ask me this question... it [their virginity] is the greatest gift that you can give someone, the ultimate gift of giving and don't give it to someone lightly, that's what I would say.
Abbott Tony quotes
The problem with the Australian practice of abortion is that an objectively grave matter has been reduced to a question of the motherís convenience.
Tony Abbott
I know politicians are going to be judged on everything they say but sometimes in the heat of discussion you go a little bit further than you would if it was an absolutely calm, considered, prepared, scripted remark. The statements that need to be taken absolutely as gospel truth are those carefully prepared scripted remarks.
