I read the Australian Financial Review every day to get some insight into the minds of men. It is the most male-centred publication in the country. Look, I'd like to blame the editor in chief entirely, but seriously, until we have fewer bank bosses called Matt, Shayne, Ross, Peter and more Shemaras, that's the way it's gonna be, little darlin'; and never mind the phallusfest otherwise known as the federal government, a pandemic of blue balls if ever there was one. Despite the blues, how is it that the best we can do is Scott, Josh and Barnaby?
