What the fuck is with this headline: PM’s mate could soon add decorating to his plate.
What, has Tim Mathieson been brought in to impregnant her? Or are they just mates?
AUSTRALIA’S ”first bloke” could soon also become the country’s first home stylist, with a long-standing tradition involving the prime minister’s partner in the decoration of The Lodge and Kirribilli House.
Why is he going to be the first home stylist if other partners have done this role before him? I don’t understand. Is it because a female spouse would just be the woman who puts the house together by herself because her husband is Doing Important Work, but a male spouse who does the same thing is a ‘home stylist’?
But Tim Mathieson may have to keep a check on his interior decorating plans for a touch longer, with Julia Gillard refusing to confirm when she will leave her red-brick Melbourne home and move to the Prime Minister’s official residence in Canberra.
Am I reading a little too much into it, or is this a little mocking?
