Quote: Tony Abbott


"My life didn't flash before my eyes.  I think the only word that passed my lips was a short one beginning with F as I saw the truck go past."

- Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, whose car was nearly collected by a truck when he stopped on the Princes Highway near Winchelsea, Victoria to make a right hand turn into a property.  Abbott was meeting with journalists to discuss the dangerous stretch of highway when a van travelling behind swerved left, which forced a large truck to swerve left onto the verge and brake suddenly.  See it at:

"Ryan's Freighters managing director Graham Ryan also told the Geelong Advertiser Mr Abbott needed 'a kick in the bum' for staging a photo opportunity in such a dangerous place."
