Abbott Sustains Back Injury Lifting Parliamentary Entitlements

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has injured his back lifting parliamentary privileges. He forgot to bend his knees.

It comes a day after Mr Abbott spoke out against people receiving benefits for back injuries. In light of those comments, Mr Abbott has bravely refused public financial assistance for the grievance.

Safe Work officers urged parliamentarians to follow occupational health and safety procedures before attempting to lift their entitlements.

An inspection of Mr Abbott’s Sydney office yesterday revealed there were privileges lying ‘all over the place’.
