The campaign to get more men to engage in rubber glove love to check out the condition of their prostates has become the object of much political chatter.
The PM’s office, and Ms Gillard herself joined those not laughing at the joke. Not only did Mr Mathieson have to apologise in a written statement, he was instructed to front a pool TV camera to repeat his contrition for the evening bulletins. This is a similar type of public humiliation to that imposed on, say, a Treasurer who has a tax which doesn’t bring in any revenue.
The good news, fingers crossed, is the uproar has done much to promote that campaign and the importance of check-ups to mens’ health.
