Running, swimming, cycling & volunteering: What Abbott said then v what Abbott says now

The Pollie Pedal: Then it was about doing something a little bit selfless. Now it’s very serious community engagement

TAbbott’s volunteering: Then it was about being a teacher's aide, a truancy assistant & a builder's labourer. Now it’s to meet with the public

TAbbott’s volunteering: Then it was about spending serious time & actually being useful. Now it’s a community event

TAbbott’s volunteering: Then it was about mucking in with Eddie, Laurie & Doreen. Now it’s official business

TAbbott at the race track: Then he reported he enjoyed the corporate hospitality of the marquees. Now it’s about the public consultation

TAbbott’s ironman participation: Then he said “I'm just being myself" Now it’s community engagement

TAbbott ironman participation: Then he said "I don't think it's something I should stop doing just because I've got a different job" Now it’s official business

TAbbott’s sporting participation: Then he said it was “mental therapy” and “a tremendous stress relief”. Now it’s a marginal seat strategy
