Pity Tony didn’t thump him back. He was an Oxford Blue in boxing

It is a pity Tony Abbott didn’t thump this ratbag back. He was an Oxford blue in boxing:

POLICE are investigating after Tony Abbott alleged that he was headbutted in the face by a tattooed pro-gay-marriage campaigner in Hobart.

The former prime minister said he was the victim of “politically motivated violence” when he was confronted by a man after attending a private function in the Tasmanian capital on Thursday afternoon.

“A fellow sung out to me, ‘Hey, Tony’. I turned around, there was a chap wearing a ‘vote yes’ badge. He says ‘I wanna shake your hand’,” Mr Abbott told 2GB radio.

“I went over to shake his hand and he headbutted me.”

Mr Abbott said his attacker “wasn’t very good at it”, but the blow did make contact.

“The only damage was a very, very slightly swollen lip,” he said. Mr Abbott did not require medical attention.

Mr Abbott said a member of his staff who accompanied him briefly grappled with the man, before he “scarpered off, swearing”.

“It was very disconcerting to find … someone who under the guise of wanting to shake your hand gives you a so-called Liverpool kiss,” Mr Abbott said.

“As he was scuttling away, amidst all the F this and F that, was ‘you deserve it because of all the things you’ve said’. I think it was pretty clear it was … politically motivated violence.”

Mr Abbott made a formal complaint about the violence after he was contacted by Tasmania Police overnight.

In Hobart, Tasmania?

Good chance the ratbag’s parents are siblings.
