It is reasonably clear what Abbott and Pyne are up to. It is to torture Thomson and Slipper into madness and suicidal thoughts and drive them out of politics so their seats can be captured in by-elections and an election brought on early.
It is very much the tactic of the dorm bully — isolate, humiliate, jeer, put the victim’s head down the toilet, convince him he’s worthless and useless till his parents take him out of there, to another school.
It nearly worked with Slipper on Tuesday last. If not he, then some family member was contemplating suicide if Tony Windsor’s careful account of it is to be correctly deciphered.
What a pair of criminals they are.
If this is not workplace harassment, what is?
