    Default This is probably not politically correct..

    Especially considering Tony Abbott's 'slip' during the week.

    But I totally agree with the nr 1 placeholder in this poll!

    I don't think I've ever seen an attractive Australian politician (obviously i haven't seen them all). Even the politicians considered attractive seem to need the addtion of "...for a politician," added. They're usually average at best.

    Can't really comment on his hotness myself. I have heard he has been called the 'minister of hotness' in the press gallery before.

    I look forward to the soon to come sexist outrage on bubhub/twitter/facebook.
    But I'm not holding my breath.

    Seriously though, I think it's totally fine to acknowledge attractiveness- we're only human after all. But it becomes sexist when their physical attributes are placed above their intellect, skills etc
