Tony Abbott may like running up the cab charge making the rounds visiting the important places. As long as he does not visit any wineries he should be fine. Just perhaps it would pay if he were to have a head to head with Papa Francesco. That may be a bad look for a Liberal Prime Minister but nonetheless be productive.
