Australia is in shock after the New Idea magazine has published a real story about a member of parliament.

“What!? New Idea does journalism? I thought that rag died decades ago,” says Sydney local woman Sara Jones.

New Idea published a story today about married Nationals MP Andrew Broad, AKA James Bond, using a dating website to meet younger women while away on tax-payer funded business trips.

The story also includes actual evidence of the story happening.

A sugar baby named Amy, aged 20, claims she had dinner with Broad at a restaurant in Hong Kong.

Broad has resigned as assistant minister to Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack saying he “never thought New Idea would bring me down”.
