They’ll argue that people should get gigs based on their talents, not social beliefs.

But Tony Abbott’s appointment is the exact opposite. He has no talent for securing trade. He is there *because of* his social beliefs, there to signal that Brexit Britain is anti-woke.
He certainly does not represent the liberal democracy of Australia, as Johnson claimed: he is at odds with it. In 2017 Australia voted overwhelmingly in favour of same-sex marriage: Abbott has campaigned vigorously against.
He’s a dinosaur. And there’s a reason we’ve hired a dinosaur: Brexit as a project is Jurassic Park, an attempt to bring back the past, a massive, vainglorious investment in relics and fences.

Of course, this ends with the dinosaurs eating you.
