Peter Dutton Reveals His Softer Side, As He Positions For Leadership

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has shed his tough exterior to reveal a softer, creamier side, in an intimate interview with The Shovel.

The Shovel’s feature writer said it was hard work to get Mr Dutton to open up, “but once we peeled back the hard skin, cut him into small pieces, boiled him for 20-30 minutes and then mashed him with some milk and butter, he was just like any other ordinary side dish”.

Dutton – who lives in Brisbane with his wife and two pomme noisettes – admitted the general public rarely got to see his more relaxed side. “They see me as the inflexible hard-man, but when I get home from work and take a long bath I really soften up.

He said he didn’t let criticism get to him. “People say all sorts of things about me. But I have a thick, fibre-rich skin”.
