Aaaarrrhhhhh!!!!! Australian Booty!

A new Royal Australian Navy submarine commander has suggested booty as a recruitment tool for the service.

A NEWLY appointed Australian Navy submarine commander is in hot water for suggesting that women sailors wearing bikinis might help to boost recruitment.

Asked by the magazine "if female sailors all had to be hot and had to wear bikinis, would that help recruitment?", Commander Phillips is quoted as responding: "It would certainly get the right demographic of young men in. I'm not sure how feasible it is, however."

The Federal Opposition and feminists have called for action over the article and Minister for Defence Warren Snowden has described the comments as "utterly unacceptable".

Mr Snowden said they did not reflect "new generation Navy" and has called for an urgent review into the criteria for media approvals to ensure interviews "match the values of the ADF".
