I heard on News Radio today that Tony Abbott will be running a triathlon (a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and a 42km marathon run).
”I haven’t done anything like the training that I should have for this event because it is impossible to get out for the two and three hours a day that you really should if you’re going to do a flash time,” he conceded yesterday.
So, Tony Abbott is planning to a physically grueling triathlon without having done “anything like the training that I should have”.
Some would say that this tendency to not prepare for important events (like a triathlon, or health debate) is symptomatic of Tony Abbott’s failings. How can we know that Tony will prepare for important policies or events if he ever gets elected as Prime Minister?
