Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Comcar records on 21/04/12 show that from 17.57pm til 19.12pm he was driven from Melbourne domestic airport “as directed” to an undisclosed location. From 23.36pm til 23.51pm, he was driven from an undisclosed Toorak address to Melbourne City. It was nearly midnight.

What was Tony Abbott doing in Melbourne that night? Who lives in Toorak? Kroger? Hugh Morgan?

From 12.25pm til 17.55pm the next day 22/04/12 he was driven from Sydney domestic airport “as directed.” That’s five and a half hours.

On 21/04/12 he competed in the Hervey Bay Surf Lifesaving Pier to Pub Swim, at a cost to taxpayers of $2023 in flights.
