4BC News: The Prime Minister's partner Tim Mathieson is in hot water over a joke about prostate cancer and Asian women.

Mr Matheison cracked a joke about digital examinations for prostate cancer to members of the West Indian cricket team at a reception at The Lodge in Canberra on Monday.

But the opposition says it's no laughing matter, with Liberal MP Kelly O'Dwyer saying the joke was tasteless.

Blog comments Your Say

  • David F, under antidiscrimination laws that the Government enforce on us, make it that you can not make a joke based on someones nationality. If the powers that be want us not to be racist they need to lead by example. If not I have a lot of Muslim and gay jokes I can post.

  • Gees, what is happening to us Aussies. It was a joke, and should be seen that way. What are we going to take offence at every joke made about Aussies as well.
    Get back to having a bit of fun guys.

  • Wow, Tim is Miss Gillards choice in a man. How embarrassment! The man can hardly put a sentence together. His diction is terrible.

    Is this what we the taxpayer pay some $300,000.00 a year for.

    Are we supposed to believe that this person is being gainfully employed as the mens health ambassador or some such thing.

  • Roger & James W, up to your usual speed I see. Just insults.

    It is hard to defend the indefensible.

  • That's funny James W does that make him a "HEADUPBOTTOMUS"...saw one on the Serengeti and come to think of it the Rangers called him Mick.

  • I believe mick's method of monitoring one's prostate (i.e. living with his head up his arse) is the most effective. No need to find someone with small digits.
