Julia cops another sandwich at Lyneham High

By johnboy - 30 May 2013 104

It appears throwing sandwiches at Julia Gillard is now a national sport.

The Courier Mail reports the seemingly doomed PM has caught a second one, this time from Canberra’s own Lyneham High:

Ms Gillard was walking in a crowded foyer at Lyneham High School – where she was announcing the ACT had signed up to her Gonski reforms – when the salami sandwich was thrown.

It was lobbed from behind, over the top of her head, and landed at her feet.

Asked if she was disappointed about today’s sandwich incident, Ms Gillard joked the thrower “must have thought I was hungry”.

UPDATE: Channel Ten’s Stephen Spencer has tweeted the sandwich in flight:

Chief Minister Gallagher considers this represents good behaviour:


Here’s the video:


And here’s WIN’s take on it:

We hear rumours the child involved has been expelled.

What’s Your opinion?

If it was salami, it’s clearly a sign that multiculturalism has failed.

Once Lyneham High gets its own Asian Century Centre, shocking acts of lèse-majesté will be a thing of the past, and visiting dignitaries will be treated to Kabuki, shadow plays and the tea ceremony – very apt, when you think about it.

If the reports of the nature of the sandwich are correct Katterite/Howard Battler tendencies would appear to be lurking at Lyneham (surely a bastion of gourmet wraps?), which is clearly another compelling illustration of why we need Gonski!

SMH is reporting that it was salami, possibly with a slice of cheese.

This pic will just reinforce the stereotype that Canberra is a white bread town.

What type of salami was it; Hungarian, Danish?
The standard of detail on this blog is slipping.

Political journalism at its greatest. Let’s all make sandwich throwing the new national policy debate.

Never let it be said that Lyneham High isn’t a classy place that’s turning out the leaders of tomorrow.

I’m sure the culprit will be given a ‘stern’ talking to and will be made to sit in the powder blue room until they feel calm and relaxed.

Or a holiday, erm I mean a horrible horrible suspension. The horror of not being able to go to school for a few days will certainly shock the offender.
