Tony Abbott recently took some time to chat to a group of school kids on an excursion in Canberra. Props to him. Of course, when he said he'd answer some questions, he probably didn't quite expect what happened next.

The kids, in Year 9 at Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, start off by asking why he got rid of the Carbon Tax. The PM gives a pretty standard answer.

Watch the whole exchange below, and rejoice that the youth aren't so disengaged after all.
