Tony Abbott


I see Australia’s Liberal party leader Tony Abbott has swept into office today in a landslide election victory . The very conservative Mr Abbott, a former boxer, Rhodes scholar and trainee priest, has promised to restore political stability, cut taxes and crack down on asylum seekers arriving by boat. He’s a bit of an action man and photographs well despite his big ears being a regular target for caricaturing and cartooning. Here’s a few pics I did of him while working for the Sydney Morning Herald a few years back.
