Just a page here to collect and compile info about Australia’s apparently illegitimate Prime Minister, the tony abbott thing.
A work in progress at the moment…

Jan Olson @ (proactive; FOI requester, see above)
They Called Us ‘Birthers’ (denigrators of pursuing abbott on legitimacy)
Cam Smith (@sexenheimer) – see ‘Media’ section above
David (@Daveo_au) – maintains a short Twitter list called ‘Birthers’. Don’t know exactly why; haven’t asked
‘green rust’ (@gr33nrust) – blocked me on Twitter; seemed to be OK (plenty of good interactions), found out I was a ‘birther’, blocked me immediately
Van Badham (@vanbadham) – blocked me on Twitter after a brief yet civil discussion (with contrasting viewpoints, but no angst), Van’s position is ‘fight them on policy’ or similar, taking the high road, disqualification would be a cheat’s way of eliminating abbott, or sentiments to that effect…
