Former Australian PM Tony Abbott Shows How To Embarrass A Nation In Twelve Easy Steps

Just two years in power and Australia's Prime Minister has already been forced to resign - but Tony Abbott has managed to accomplish at lot in such a short period.

That is, if embarrassing a nation is an achievement.

From sexist remarks to saying "shit happens" when informed of a soldier's death, the 57-year-old has squeezed in a lot of mishaps during his time as leader.

After Abbott was ousted as leader of the centre-right Liberal Party by Malcolm Turnbull on Monday, Australia will now see its fifth Prime Minister in eight years.

Abbott was known for his outspoken views before becoming Prime Minister in September 2013, and taking on the role did nothing to change that.
