Yesterday Craig Thomson, currently sitting in Parliament as an Independent, voted with the Opposition against the Government. So determined are the Opposition not to be seen accepting his ‘tainted’ vote that three Opposition members attempted to run out of the room. Warren Entsch ran to a closed door, Tony Abbott tried to get out of a different door and was called back by the Speaker, only Christopher “Gazelle” Pyne made it out. For those of you away from social media yesterday, this has been all over Twitter like a rash. Yep this is the potential leader of this country.
My favs from Twitter
Abbott fleeing from Craig Thomson in Parliament is disgraceful. Whether or not Thomson has girl germs is for the courts to decide. #auspol

i just keep watching that and trying to pinpoint the moment a 55y/o man decides bolting for the door is the best political option.

LOL at Tony Abbott running from the chamber like a schoolboy caught weeing in the teacher’s drawer.
