    Default Julia Gillard's partner apologises for 'joke' about prostate exams and "small female Asian" doctors!

    Australian prime minister Julia Gillard's partner is in the doghouse after making an allegedly sexist and racist joke

    First Bloke Tim Mathieson apologises for prostate joke 'in poor taste'

    JULIA Gillard has admitted that comments by her partner about prostate cancer and Asian women were in poor taste and it was right that he apologise. ...



    The change of expression on Julia's face makes very clear that she was not amused!

    That wasn't sexist- if you have to get a finger up the tradesman's entrance, obviously you would prefer a small finger than Packie Bonner's fist. Silliness.

    Silliness also that she should be held accountable for her husband's comments.

    Should have just said "a doctor with small hands". Don't try and be too clever. Still, we wouldn't be discussing his speech otherwise.

    So lads, all of you of a certain age run along now and get your prostate checked.

    It was in no way 'poor taste'. The world is going to become a boring place with everyone watching their 'Ps & Qs'.

    Problem for Julia is that she is the one pushing the 'anti-sexism' agenda (as Tony Abbott well knows!)
