A family friend last night said the decision to use a surrogate mother to give birth to their child was an “enormous” one for a politician.

Even bigger for a Labor pollie

 Stephen Conroy, Labor’s hard man, factional manipulator and shadow communications spokesman, is now a daddy. His wife, Paula Benson isn’t however, a mummy. Another woman is ‘mummy’ and a third woman was the oven. Strangely for me, as someone who doesn’t comprehend this seemingly mindless pursuit for immortality through loin-fruit, I’m happy for the Conroys. I can only hope that they too, are happy. Baking a bun with someone else’s dough in somebody else’s oven still gives you a bun at the end of the day……or baking……as the case may be.
