How delightful to live in this country. Surely this must be one of the funniest nations on the planet. And no, I'm not being sarcastic or facetious, I just adore that Julia Gillard's man - Tim Mathieson - is a hairdresser who loves a beer and who obviously has no problem with his girl being now the Prime Minister.
"She will absolutely be a fantastic prime minister," he told Melbourne's Herald Sun. "She has the right mindset and she is very consultative. I am so proud to be her partner and to be able to support her today."
His former colleague Grace Rominan: "He was a very bubbly guy. He did styling -- cutting and blow-drying...I'm just so glad that she chose someone outside of politics. He's such a great guy and I know he will make her very happy."
From here. Where else but Oz would this sort of story come from? It makes living 154 million miles from anywhere else all worth it.
