    It seems times are tough for our former Prime Minster Tony Abbott, who has been surfing Gumtree for a second-hand bargain.

    Mr Abbott and his wife Margie bought a $300 Daewoo fridge from student Emily Hastings and the former PM was only too happy to pose for a pic.

     

     

    With an annual member’s salary of around $200,000, as well as any other income he receives, Mr Abbott may no be short of a dollar, but it’s good to see he’s as frugal as the rest of us.

    Do you think Mr Abbot was really interested in a second-hand fridge or is the opportunity to prove he’s just an average bloke priceless?

    I agree Pete.  The populace would probably be fascinated to know that he goes to the toilet too.

    You are slipping Gerry.  It took you all of 9 minutes to comee out with that 2 liner.  Interesting that Debbie took the time & effort to let you know that it was a trap.  You are so full of it.

    Poor Tony will never find his way to obscurity if we keep diverting him from his course. Let the guy be……his memory is fading already.

    He’s not frugal when he’s spending our money (on book launches, attending charity events, weddings, birthday parties and the like), only when he’s spending his own money.

    Has anyone thought he may have bought it to give to someone in need.  Give the guy a break he’s human like the rest of us – mind you with some of the comments I see I wonder about some of you!!

    Remember it is the season of good will to ALL men.

    I couldn’t care less what any politicians or celebrities spend their money on. I’m too busy living my own life to get worked up about them. And that goes for the whole lot of them. Some of the comments are really very small-minded, bordering on downright nastiness.
