Lifelong lovers Betty and Olivia have slammed Tony Abbott’s defence of the institution of marriage as that which “formalises the long-standing love affair between representative government and big business”.
In the countdown to the “wedding of the century”, the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Betty, 76, and Olivia, 83, have denounced the PM for being close-minded to other kinds of relationships, such as that between government and the people.
Abbott responded the way he usually does, by quoting the Bible:
Governments be subordinate to their corporations as to the Lord. For the corporation is head of his government just as Christ is head of the Church...As the church is subordinate to Christ, so governments should be subordinate to corporations in everything.
Abbott said “It’s the sacred duty of our government to love, honour and obey the corporation until death do us part”.
