Australian politics saw another low when it emerged that the menu at an opposition fundraising dinner offered "Julia Gillard quail … with small breasts, huge thighs and a big red box."

The Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has called on Liberal National party to drop Mal Brough, the candidate responsible for organising the dinner.

"Mr Brough should be disendorsed, that's what should happen here," Gillard told reporters in Perth.

Opposition leader Tony Abbott, while admitting that he menu was "tacky and scatological", however said that Brough's candidacy was safe. 

The owner of the restaurant  that held the fundraiser said the offending menu had not been displayed publicly.  "I created a mock menu myself as a light-hearted joke, however as I said I never produced them for public distribution," Joe Richards said.

"Unfortunately a staff member saw the mock menu, and unbeknownst to myself, posted it on their Facebook. It now appears that a third party for political reasons has distributed it, yet I can reassure you that no such menu was distributed on the night."

Former prime minister Kevin Rudd was not spared either, as the menu also included "Rudd's a Goose Foie Gras" and instructed guests to eat up all their greens "before they take over".

This is not the first time that Australian PM has been forced to confront sexism in her country's politics. Last year, she told opposition leader, Tony Abbott that if he wanted to know what misogyny looked like he should pick up a mirror.
