Ousted former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has come under fire from prominent Australian Catholic priests after calling on Europe to shut its borders and deny entry to asylum seekers.
From personal experience and by all other accounts, Tony Abbott is a good guy. Many suggest he's surprisingly funny, caring and dedicated to public service.
