Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has labelled a menu from an opposition party fundraiser which included a dish described 'Julia Gillard Kentucky Fried Quail, Small Breasts, Huge Thighs & A Big Red Box' as "grossly sexist".

Australia's opposition has been forced to apologise for a lewd menu used at a fundraiser which made references to Julia Gillard's genitalia while describing a main dish of fried quail.

The menu, used at a Liberal Party dinner in the state of Queensland, included a dish called "Julia Gillard Kentucky Fried Quail" which was described as "Small Breasts, Huge Thighs & A Big Red Box".
The 20-person dinner in March was hosted by a former federal minister, Mal Brough, and featured the would-be next treasurer, Joe Hockey, as a guest of honour.
The opposition leader, Tony Abbott, who is ahead in the polls and expected to win the September election, criticised the menu but expressed support for Mr Brough.
"I think we should all be bigger and better than that - whether it's a tacky, scatological menu out the front of a Liberal Party event, whether it's squalid jokes told at union conference dinners with ministers present," he said.
"Whatever it is, I think we should be better than that. I think we should be appealing to every Australian's best self as we go into this election."
