New Poll: Tony Abbott (not quite) Australia’s Most Hated Public Figure

June 3, 2015

Tony Abbott has narrowly avoided taking out the top gong as the nation’s most hated Australian, instead coming in at No.2.

Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris romped home to the top spot deposing radio personality Kyle Sandilands as Australia’s most hated public figure.

The Encore Score is a ranking system of on-air talent across TV, radio, film and the media. It is tabulated from a survey of 3,000 respondents who are shown a series of pictures of Australian personalities and asked how they feel about them from ‘one of my favourites’ to ‘I hate them’.

Sandilands topped the most hated list last year but has slipped down to third place in the most recent survey.

Other politicians to make the list of least popular identities include Clive Palmer, Joe Hockey and Pauline Hanson.

Model and new mum Lara Bingle rounds out the top ten list.

Hollywood nice guy Hugh Jackman is the most liked Australian identity, followed by actors Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana.

The survey, which was conducted by online questions and answers firm Pureprofile, was commissioned by Focal Attractions, the parent company of Mumbrella.

Top Ten most popular Aussies:

1. Hugh Jackman

2. Cate Blanchett

3. Eric Bana

4. Olivia Newton John

5. Anh Do

6. Hamish Blake

7. Rebecca Gibney

8. Amanda Keller

9. Nicole Kidman

10. Simon Baker

Top Ten least popular Aussies:

    I would’ve nominated Bindi Irwin in the Top 10 most hated somewhere. Oh and David Koch.

    Wow, tabot, pipped at the post by a pedophile.

    And the fact that SCREAMING LEFTY (allegedly) like Cate Blanchett is the second most popular will be sending the likes of bolt into conniptions

    That alone is worth the price of what should be considered a useless poll 🙂

    Going on media reports, they’d come under the “blah” category

    Oh and David Koch.

    I remember him. I am old. Koch told people to get a fixed interest rate loan when interest rates on home loans were at 17%. So lots of people got a fixed interest rate loan at 15%. Lo and behold interest rates after being at 17% for years suddenly dropped to well below 15%.

    Lots of people wanted to do bad things to Koch.

    Brandis & Michael Clarke should be on there.

    Snowden should be somewhere near the top of the International list.

    I also note, wikileaks are keen as fuck to spill the beans on the TPP; and should.

  15. June 3, 2015 7:01 pm

    I meant Snowden near the top of the ‘liked’ International list.

    Ken Oath they should, Cos everything we hear, we hear that “we” are being screwed over.

    Highly sensitive details of the negotiations over the little-known Trades in Services Agreement (TiSA) published by WikiLeaks reveals Australia is pushing for extensive international financial deregulation while other proposals could see Australians’ personal and financial data freely transferred overseas.

    The secret trade documents also show Australia could allow an influx of foreign professional workers and see a sharp wind back in the ability of government to regulate qualifications, licensing and technical standards including in relation to health, environment and transport services.

    It’s like they want Australians to be a nation of natural cleaners?

    The only light at the end of the tunnel I see is state Labors decision to FINALLY refund TAFE! And you know it’s the right move, when all of the vested interests are having conniptions.

    After listening to yabot yesterday in qt, who again ignored a question and instead just made shit up about Labor (where’s the Speaker?) this is timely.

    More than half of Australians retiring in the next 40 years will not have enough income to achieve a comfortable retirement.

    That’s the finding of modelling commissioned by Industry Super Australia,…………………
    …………….
    ……………….

    “One of the main causes is poorly targeted tax breaks on superannuation, which are now wildly out of balance between high income earners and those on medium to lower wages,” Industry Super Australia boss David Whiteley said on Thursday.

    http://www.businessspectator.com.au/news/2015/6/4/national-affairs/abbott-govt-pressured-super

    The libs can keep screaming out fear and famine, but hopefully, the problem will be so obvious (and so critical) that the msm just won’t be able to ignore it.

    I just find it amazing that the party that is actively preventing people from receiving a larger super payout in compulsory super (and therefore also alleviating pensions into the future), is attacking Labor for allegedly trying to reduce super. 😯

    Without the full support of the media, this could never have been attempted. Will the msm fall in line or not? It’s looking hopeful at the moment that actual dialogue of facts will be entered into. Will it hold.

    Just more proof that “national security” is nothing but a political tool for a political tool

    Prime Minister Tony Abbott has rejected the opposition’s request for a briefing on a plan to strip dual citizens of their Australian citizenship, in a sign the bipartisanship on national security may be breaking down.

    You know it is really great that you lefties do not like Abbott.

    That is all the evidence i need that Abbott is doing something right.

    Lefties do nothing but destroy people lives. Abbott therefore must be helping people.

    yabots mob caught bullshitting in qt again

    The Abbott government has admitted it erred in claiming that a letter from Lindt Cafe gunman Man Haron Monis to Attorney-General George Brandis was scrutinised by the siege inquiry – but waited three days to acknowledge the error.

    The delay in informing Parliament and the public meant that the government faced no questions in Parliament over the blunder because MPs were rising at the end of a Canberra sitting fortnight.
