The news that ‘Lady’ Sonia McMahon is dead at 77 has even stirred Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to sing her praises:
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd today said Lady Sonia was a “distinguished representative of Australia”.
“She was a wife of a prime minister of this country, they lived in the house where we are currently standing this morning,” he told reporters outside The Lodge, in Canberra.
“So I believe appropriate respects should be paid to her family, appropriate respect to the contribution that she and her husband made to Australia, and understand at a purely human level, this is a day of great sadness for any family.”
But you is wrong Kevin Rudd. Sonia was an opportunist who married an old gay guy called Billy McMahon who happend to be the Treasurer of the country at the time, and she used her position to climb the social ladder. Oh and as Billy was already a ‘Sir’, that meant she instently became a ‘Lady’ … in name only. If Sonia had been a bloke she’d have been called a gigilo and a flasher:
Errrr, that’s not exactly ‘Lady’ like is it?
And if youse need more proof that what I am saying is right and that the ‘Lady’ really was a tramp – this is the old fart she married:
