Tony Abbott Has Full Support Of Australia’s Flags

Australia’s flags came out in a show of support for embattled Prime Minister Tony Abbott today.

Eight of Mr Abbott’s closest flags stood behind him during a speech on Australia’s involvement in the Middle East, in a direct challenge to those who claim the PM has no support.

“I do, I believe, enjoy the full support of my flags, the full support of my flags. I have a very strong group of flags, and I intend to get on with the business of putting as many flags behind me to give the impression that I am strong,” Mr Abbott said today.

Deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop said she believed the flags when they said they supported the Prime Minister. “Let’s just say I am not running a flag poll”.

The flags refused to be drawn on leadership speculation.
