A new book written by The Australian journalist Nikki Savva is set to unravel the mystery behind the fall of Tony Abbott government. Titled “The Road to Ruin: How Tony Abbott and Peta Credlin destroyed their own government,” the book promises to be a dynamite that will explode the truth about the Abbott government.
The Australian explains that Savva’s book is a retelling of the of what his colleagues believed led to various failings in the government, resulting in an eventual downfall.
The book is explosive and one wonders if it will strip Abbott of whatever is left of his reputation. It is also expected to talk about the closeness Credlin and Abbott shared when they were in power. There is nothing wrong with having a close working relationship. But sure gets awkward when your colleagues see you getting fed mouthfuls of food by the chief-of-staff, in this case Credlin explains News.com.au.
The MP who witnessed this in a Melbourne restaurant, told Savva that it was awkward. “I have only ever done that with my partner or a date,” he said revealed The Advertiser. Savva clarifies that the incident does not imply a romantic liaison between Abbott and Credlin. It just indicates the level of dependence, and obsession, and all that Abbott was prepared to sacrifice for it.
It is believed that NSW Liberal conservative Concetta Fierravanti-Wells too confronted Abbott.“Politics is about perceptions,’’ The Senator told Abbott states The Australian. “Rightly or wrongly, the perception is that you are sleeping with your chief of staff. That’s the perception, and you need to deal with it.’’
“The Road to Ruin” not just explores the downfall of the Abbott government. It also digs deep into the complicated relationship between the ex-Prime Minister and his chief-of-staff. The book also brings to light a fact that Abbott failed. He failed to respond to red flags about the government’s performance. He failed to seek and accept the advice that his relationship with Credlin was to blame for Prime Ministerial failure reveals The Australian.
