Abbott puts barnacles on his pre-Christmas menu

After announcing cuts to the ABC, the PM says he has a couple more 'barnacles' to deal with before Christmas. We don't know what they are, but we do know Abbott is losing public support on key issues.

With the polling bad, some of his strongest media backers excoriating him and his pants on fire over the “no cuts to the ABC” pledge, Tony Abbott has assured his Coalition partyroom that, bar a couple of “barnacles”, everything is going all right.

Abbott admitted it had at times been a difficult year but said the tumult had all been external to the government, which had been stable, competent and delivered on its promises -- stopping the boats, building the roads and the like.
