The Canberra Times has a leak from the Legislative Assembly Labor caucus on Andrew Barr’s declarations of love for Jon Stanhope and Katy Gallagher.
- The Sunday Canberra Times has obtained a confidential caucus document distributed on Friday afternoon in which Mr Barr says if the role of chief minister became available he would nominate only for the deputy leadership and support current deputy Katy Gallagher at the top of the ticket.
Julius Caesar, Act 1, Scene 2:
- I saw Mark Antony offer him a crown;–yet ’twas not a crown
neither, ’twas one of these coronets;–and, as I told
you, he put it by once: but, for all that, to my
thinking, he would fain have had it. Then he
offered it to him again; then he put it by again:
but, to my thinking, he was very loath to lay his
fingers off it. And then he offered it the third
time; he put it the third time by: and still as he
refused it, the rabblement hooted and clapped their
chapped hands and threw up their sweaty night-caps
and uttered such a deal of stinking breath because
Caesar refused the crown that it had almost choked
Caesar; for he swounded and fell down at it: and
for mine own part, I durst not laugh, for fear of
opening my lips and receiving the bad air.
