Jorian Gardner goes down on Andrew Barr MLA – And it is enourmous!

By johnboy - 27 April 2006 33

CityNews seems to be going through a kick with putting bylines on their puff pieces. You’d think having arts impressario and Canberra Review editor Jorian Gardner bylined on a politics story would be the funniest thing about their profile on new MLA Andrew Barr. But just down the page a candidate for “oddest paragraph in the history of writing” rears its head.

And it is enormous.

Also a public policy degree makes one “Super Qualified” in Jorian-world (rather than merely “having qualifications”).

The article does finish with some Super! Enthusiastic! Stuff about Andrew’s sexuality.

Given that the ACT Government is considering legalising same-sex unions, have Andrew and his partner considered formalising their relationship under the new laws?

“We have only spoken very briefly about it, but to be honest, I am still waiting to be asked!” Andrew roared with laughter and his infectious smile flashed across his face.

Andrew roared with laughter and his infectious smile flashed across his face. I think Anthony needs to be a little careful, sounds like Jorian’s quite taken…

Jorian clearly Barr-ed up during the interview.

It’s ‘Princess Jasmine’ that worries me.

Would you could you with a Barr?
Would you should you in his car?

“You didn’t read the CityNews link did you vg?”

No sorry, I never read that trash. Especially articles about members of the Comrade’s politburo

I reckon Jorian started it with his bodice-ripper prose.

JB started it….

Come come, no smutty comments please. I don’t like to have this stuff rammed down my throat.

Kimba, that is revolting…

You didn’t read the CityNews link did you vg?

He’s also the first openly gay pollie we have had in the ACT.

Has his sexuality ever been an issue in his career?

“When I came out in the late ‘90s I had already been in the party for some eight years, so people were already used to me,” he said.

johnboy 11:25 am 27 Apr 06

he’s been openly “out” for many years now.

vg 11:22 am 27 Apr 06

Not that its anything to do with anything, but is Barr gay?

Kerces 11:19 am 27 Apr 06

Barr certainly has been getting his not-so-ugly mug in the paper a lot. Not to mention in all those damn balloon photos on SGS’s site.

I find this story a bit hard to swallow!
