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

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!)

The good news is that a....er....invasive procedure is no longer required. A simple blood test does the job.

Ye think thats bad there's some backwoodsman in Ireland who wants to legalise drink driving so his pub won't have to close due to lack of custom.

When one has reached the point of calling it 'the tradesman's entrance' it's probably too late to make an ado about single finger's thickness...

Heard a story years ago about a very heavily-built man having his prostate checked.

He dropped his strides but was too fat to bend over.

The doctor, a junior intern, dropped to his knee, one hand on the patient's shoulder, and the other preparing to examine. His supervising doctor joined to see how things were going.

As the finger was going in, he put a hand on the patient's other shoulder and enquired as to whether the patient was feeling any discomfort

The patient, aware of something up his ass and a hand on each shoulder, didn't react terribly well.
