Were the waist belts on that gladiator outfit really, really tight?
He does look somewhat like he has a corset on in the "Gladiator" picture - but he was definitely very fit when filming that too.
Anyway back to politics - did anyone see the rumor on News.com.au that Mathias Corrman is set to quit after the Eden-Monaro by-election tomorrow? I'm not sure how serious it is but they claim he can't stand working with ScoMo and has called him a 'control' freak' in cabinet meetings.
Even if that's true, I think you need to be a control freak if you're Prime Minister - perhaps not in the style of Rudd but Howard definitely ran a very tight ship and could be classified as a 'control freak' given he never allowed ministers to speak to the media without consulting his office first.
