PMJG questioning why ABC isn't making an At Home With Tony if it wasn't another gendered attack on her #GillardMelb

“PMJG”, in case you were wondering, is Julia Gillard, currently giving a talk in support of her autobiography. And while we tend to think the brief existence of At Home With Julia may have had more to do with politics rather than gender – the ABC is constantly sucking up to the Liberal side of politics, because that’s the side that’s happy to rip the guts out of their budget – it’s still a good point.
So hey, why did we have to wait until we had a female PM before we got a satirical show focusing on a serving PM’s home life? Or has Gillard – and everyone else – forgotten this comedy gold from Rove Live:
Just be grateful we couldn’t find any clips of Wednesday Night Fever‘s “Downton Abbott”.
