    Tony Abbott, now the new Australian Prime Minister.  My understanding is that their "platform" is lower taxes, anti-immigration, cut the deficit.  Sounds familiar. Abbott also opposes gay marriage and has been a skeptic on climate change.  Is there any good news to come out of this?

      I know paid parental leave isn't real popular even with liberals in the US but Abbott is planning to introduce it in Australia where the left largely do like it.
      Also there is no Coalition plan to impose austerity, the deficit rhetoric appears to just be posturing.
