Former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says he will pay for a table smashed during a farewell party after his ousting (“驱逐,取代”)from the leadership.

 

The marble table cost A$590 ($428; £277) when it was purchased more than twenty years ago.

Mr Abbott was toppled (“推翻”)as leader by Malcolm Turnbull last month after being plagued(“困扰”,高分词汇) by poor polls(“民意调查/投票”;before/after + doing在写作中很常用,注意主格和被动形态的使用).

Cleaners discovered shards (“碎片”)of the marble (“大理石”) table on 15 September, the day after Mr Abbott’s ousting, a parliamentary committee (“议会委员”)that heard.(很稀有的宾语从句提前表强调,句末倒装主句用以补充说明,正常语序为a parliamentary committee heard that cleaners discovered…)

The committee also heard from an email written by a Department of Parliamentary Services (DPS) official suggesting the table “may have been damaged by persons standing or dancing on it”.(很典型的两个伴随状语修饰 an email,一个被动written一个主动suggesting)

 

“Quite a party,” said senator Penny Wong from opposition Labor (“反对党”).

But Cory Bernardi, from the governing Liberals (“自由党”), urged (“怂恿,推进”) caution (“警告”)over the matter saying the email suggesting the cause of the damage was “largely speculative “(“推测的,令人生疑的”).

(urge caution over…发起对某个问题的警惕,论述句好用)
