    No it wasn't. It was a stripper. But it was for Bob Hawke's birthday party, and they were definitely aware of her presence.

    No, I am not 'offended or outraged'. It was inappropriate, yes. Was it from the Liberal party? No.

    Interestingly, whilst you say that you were offended by the Howard stripper, John Howard himself was not.

    His exact quote: ""I was certainly not offended".

    I think that is testament to his strength and character.

    I do, however, understand why Gillard would be offended. But, if she was offended, she should show such offense when it is created. Not months after. This does not make sense to me. It appears as though she is self-generating offense for her personal political gain. I would not be surprised if this stunt again blows up in her face. Most other things do.

    Would the same comments made about Gillard also be deemed appropriate on this forum?

    Haven't read any replies.

    Some of it is funny but the bit about Julia is very bad taste. And very inappropriate. And the libs have the hide to criticise Julia for saying Tony and the libs are mysonginists. W@nkers!

    It's a bit weird quoting myself, but from Peter van Onselen's twitter account, "the restaurant owner considers himself a Labor man".

    I think it is more likely now to blow up in her face.

    Tried to scroll through but it was too long. Can you summarize? We're people criticising the size of Abbots balls or noodle? Ar$e? Man-boobs?

    Maybe you should have before saying your last sentence.
