Andrew Broad has resigned after a story in New Idea’s “Mere Male” column revealed the member for Mallee had been doing more than charging like a mallee bull.
“I was furious at my MM husband and member of parliament for acting like a sleaze on an overseas trip but had to laugh when he excused his behaviour by saying that he just wanted to show a local girl what an Australian member looked like,” read the anecdote in the magazine’s popular Mere Male section.
“Mere Male is generally devoted to everyday blokes acting like doofuses and making dodgy puns so we’re thrilled to have cracked a story that had eluded the Canberra press gallery,” said chuffed New idea editor Paula Babybump. “Our political content is mostly about hunting down topless photos of Clive Palmer frolicking on Caribbean beaches and speculating about whether Julie Bishop has had any work done so we’re elated to be out competing the Michelle Grattans and the Malcolm Farrs.”
Meanwhile Andrew Broad’s horse and plane are consulting their lawyers after it was revealed that Mr Broad had been riding other horses and flying other planes.
