Tony Abbott channels Dr Seuss as part of inspired new political strategy.

Has the PM been eating Green Eggs and Ham? ‘Cos his defence speech was a little bit Seuss.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott has always been a fan of easy-to-digest messages. But his latest announcement ramps up rhyme time to Dr Seuss proportions.

He’s might be our Prime Minister. He might be snappin’ necks and cashin’ cheques in his blue tie.

But he’s not just some stiff. He’s a rappin’ dude.

And his latest Youtube post may be selling a serious message of national security but it’s not just rhetoric. It’s RHYME TIME.

This is a story all about how,

Our tough new PM has come with a vow.

Determined to stop terrorist crime,

He told us his plan in a triumph of rhyme.

There are good guys here and bad guys too,

But there will be no more mugs for me or you.

It’s rhymetime with Tony.

Our rhyme-time Tony has long been a fan,

Of three-word slogans that announce his game plan.

‘Cut the Debt’ and ‘Stop The Boats’,

‘A Stronger Australia’ to garner more votes.

Tony, you’re off to great places, you’re off and away!  Almost dumped last week but now it’s your day!

You defeated the motion, you’re now back in front. So be on your way and tell Pyne he’s a…

Pull on your boxing gloves and furrow your brow,

And punch on Tony.  Good Government starts now!

The Cat in the Policy Hat

“It’s clear to me that for too long we have given those who might be a threat to our country the benefit of the doubt,” the Prime Minister said today.

“There’s been the benefit of the doubt at our borders, the benefit of the doubt for residency, the benefit of the doubt for citizenship and the benefit of the doubt at Centrelink”.

And we’ve just GOT to be aware of people playing us for mugs.

As the PM says, “we are a free and fair nation, but that doesn’t mean we should let bad people play us for mugs”.

Of hot chocolate OR otherwise.

Rhyming your slogans can be such a thrill, do you have any more we can add to the bill?
