Tony Abbott just lost my support

April 5th, 2009 at 01:06pm

What little support I had left for Tony Abbott has now been eradicated thanks to his statement yesterday about apologising to the so-called stolen generations:

LIBERAL frontbencher Tony Abbott has admitted for the first time that the Coalition made a mistake by refusing to apologise to the Stolen Generations while in power, reversing his position and publicly contradicting John Howard.
[..]
“It was a mistake for us not to apologise to Aboriginal people,” the Opposition indigenous affairs spokesman said.

“And I’m pleased when Kevin Rudd did decide to apologise that he was strongly supported by the Coalition.”

My position on the apology hasn’t changed since last year. It was a bad idea then, and it’s still a bad idea now, although I dare say that there’s not a darn thing we can do about it.
