Richard Farmer’s chunky bits: a partner to be seen not heard

It might go down well in a men's shed but Tim Mathieson should be kept silent in front of television cameras or surely he will fall victim to Nicola Roxon and her thought police.

It started with a kiss. The Prime Minister got hers from a new Australian. And from his wife for the Opposition Leader.
Australia Day and the campaigning really began. The babies would surely follow as an election year got off and smooching. And sure enough this morning:

My fearless prediction is that Tony the SNAG will not be far behind.

    There’s a difference between “try to” and “convince” us? It’s not as though he has?

    Re Tim Mathieson: Two things – first he would appear to be stating the bleeding obvious when he says that female Asian doctors are tiny and very female, with small hands!
    And two, Tim has done a magnificent job of highlighting the need for men to have regular “digital” examinations of their prostate glands. After all, the whole blo+dy country is talking about it!!!
    I am female, and what he had to say didn’t upset me, and I doubt it bothered too many Asian female doctors either.
