Lambie's gaffe was about class, not sex

Amid a deluge of double-entendres, the Lambie controversy is really a debate about ‘what kind of person’ is fit to represent Australians in a democratic parliament.

There have been a lot of dick jokes in the national media in the past week after Palmer United Party senator Jacqui Lambie said on Hobart’s Heart 107.3FM that her perfect man “must have heaps of cash and they have got to have a package between their legs...”

Oh the fun journalists had with that quote – the double entendres are endless.
