Tony the Tagger

This is a good description of Tony Abbott and the role he is playing in Australian politics right now:

They called him a ”tagger” which, for those unfamiliar with the game, is a tough player assigned to stick to a star player on the other side and prevent them playing their game by haranguing and frustrating them constantly.

This helps explain why the Coalition is so strong in the polls but Abbott’s personal ratings hover around the same levels as Gillard’s. Still, Abbott wouldn’t be Gillard for quids.
