Wikipedia include the following on Abbott’s career to date…

  • Roman Catholic seminarian
  • Throughout his time as a student and seminarian, Abbott was writing articles for newspapers and magazines—first for the Sydney University Newspaper, and laterThe Catholic Weekly and national publications like The Bulletin.
  • He eventually became a journalist and wrote for The Australian.[13]
  • Executive Director of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy…Between 1993 and 1994 Abbott was the Executive Director of ACM.[8]
  • According to biographer Michael Duffy, Abbott’s involvement with ACM “strengthened his relationship with John Howard, who in 1994 suggested he seek pre-selection for a by-election in the seat of Warringah.”[26] Howard provided a glowing reference and Abbott won pre-selection for the safe Liberal seat.[27]
  • Abbott campaigned as Minister for Health at the 2007 election. On 31 October, he apologised for saying ‘just because a person is sick doesn’t mean that he is necessarily pure of heart in all things’, after Bernie Banton, an asbestos campaigner and terminal mesothelioma sufferer, called him ‘gutless’ for not being present to collect a petition.[51]
