The Highrise abode is often shockingly politically incorrect. All said in humour and for our ears only (the first person who says, many a truth spoken in jest, will get a slapping). Nevertheless, let me recount what just happened.
There was a tv promo for Annabel's Kitchen, a show featuring respected journalist Annabel Crabb joining politicians to cook, eat, drink and chat, and it can be quite a revealing show. More often than not it humanises politicians, a good thing for them and interesting to the viewer.
R after watching the promotion for the show: I didn't know Albanese is gay.
Me, surprised: Neither did I.
I immediately sat in my usual chair and asked my friend the internet.
Me: No he is not. He is married to Carmel Tebbutt, who was deputy premier of New South Wales.
R: So he is one of those bee-sex-ual types? (His emphasis was brilliant and I was laughing)
Me: No sweets, just gay friendly. He did lead Sydney's Mardi Gras parade in 2003.
The other politician guest in the show is Christopher Pyne. He is also married and lest I be sued, I could not possibly write what I have heard about him and his delectations.
Before I go too far, lets me finish with some nice music, truly quite unrelated to Christopher Pyne, truly, the brilliant and sadly late Chrissy Amphlett.
