Tony Abbott is dishonest
I use the word dishonest rather than liar.
There is a difference.
A liar is mostly a person who conceals something that has happened, by telling fibs.
A dishonest person creates a deliberate situation (a sting) in which lying is part of the construct in order to make you swallow the bait, no matter how horrible the taste is.
Trying to negotiate with a liar is iffy but not impossible.
Should you trade horses with a dishonest person it's guaranteed the horse you eventually get is a dud, no matter how polished the saddle is.
This is why labor should NEVER EVER accept ANY single part of Tony's dishonest budget. A dishonest person will tempt you with parts or a tad of gleam on bits... You have to be prepared to reject the whole lot, en masse, no matter how much you could be tempted to compromise on a few bits.
Tony's budget IS DISHONEST
