Julia cops another sandwich at Lyneham High

johnboy 31 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.

Karma is a word that comes to mind. Stab a man in the back, have a sandwich thrown at you by some bogan kid. As for the labour party september will be their karma. Lets hope Tony surprises us.

Surely the Police are too busy investigating the AWU slush fund, Peter Slipper, Craig Thomson, endless leaks of Treasury ‘analysis’, the tendering of the Australia Network, the Australia Day race riot, unlawful government advertising during the current election campaign, fudged ACT hospital data, and the cosy deal between ACT Labor Clubs and the ACT Government to take this scandal on too?

…nor do they (in-school suspensions) appear on the student’s record AFAIK… basically, a “Clayton’s” suspension.

Media widely reporting the student will receive a 3-5 day in-school suspension. This is a favourite of schools, because they are not included in a school’s suspension data…

I knew the school couldn’t resist the temptation to punish the sandwich-thrower for being such a naughty little boy.

You want a medal for that prediction?

Well actually I don’t think he was dealt with at all. According to one report, no action was taken against him. If that’s the case it is a startling example of how poorly Ju-liar is regarded in this country (even in traditionally left wing Canberra) and how the election is likely to be a 1975-style massacre.

Do you only have a quarter of a brain?

Even someone with no brain like me can see that the September election is going to be a massacre for Labor and their leader.

As tooks pointed out, the quarter wit comment stems from juliar.
Anyone who says that is a total moron who gets all their facts from Hadley and jones.

All politicians lie. All. Of. Them.

You can always pick a Hadley/Alan Jones fan. They are the stupidest people in the country and will refer to our prime minister as Ju-Liar (like she’s the only prime minister who has ever lied).

I don’t particularly like her politics, but I’ll tell you if my kid threw a sandwich at the PM, or any other woman, I can assure you he’d never even think of doing it a second time.

I had a roast chicken thrown at me at the SCG many years ago.

Yes, you read that right, a whole roast chicken…

That is really bizarre behaviour, normally it’s ducks at the cricket…

The student in question is to have ‘discussions’ between the school, himself and the parents.

No suspension or expulsion.

One has to think that the leap from sandwich to rock or pebble is not that great. And that is a huge worry.

Gillard sanger thrower ‘dealt with’

The schoolboy embroiled in the latest sandwich-throwing incident involving Prime Minister Julia Gillard has been dealt with in-house at his Canberra high school.

The Prime Minister was visiting Lyneham High School on Thursday when a salami sanger was lobbed her way.

While Ms Gillard was quick to dismiss the incident, it quickly attracted national attention.

Australian Federal Police categorised the matter as “minor”.

ACT school authorities on Friday issued a brief update, with a spokeswoman saying: “Appropriate action has been taken at a school level in accordance with normal processes.”

Thursday’s incident was not the first time Ms Gillard has attracted an airborne sandwich.

Brisbane student Kyle Thomson, 16, was suspended from school for 15 days after a sandwich was pegged at the Prime Minister during her visit to Marsden State High School earlier in May.

Kyle denies he was responsible.

Neither sandwich made contact with Ms Gillard.

I thought Mr G had been warned off schools….

Why exactly would they not punish him?

Jungle Jim said :

You’re probably right, but surely the attempted assault of the PM would be at least something high on the list of expulsion worthy acts. Even if it was meant as a joke (albeit it horrible taste) I can’t see this kid getting off lightly.

Why? It was essentially harmless and, unlike bullying, didn’t involve making someones life a living hell.

That kid is in my son’s class and is not the smartest chicken and according to my son the school’s biggest bogan. He was standing near him when he decided to throw it. Apparently thought it would be hilarious. He also has been suspended for three weeks and his facebook account has been deleted. A few people including teachers are happy he’s not there.

Considering how the US treats their former Presidents, a bunch of visiting American businessmen were amazed when they saw a tipsy former-PM Bob Hawke waiting in a carpark for a cab or something after the races, and some young blokes pulled up and shouted out, “Hawkie you bloody legend!” only for Hawke to reply, “If you think I’m that much of a legend, how’s about giving me a lift?” before he hopped into their Datsun.

Didn’t see it first-hand, but utterly believable in this country.

I read an account of it – but said to be after a footy match in Melbourne …

Sanger ryhmes with ranga, so what will be thrown at the budgie smuggler ?

I can’t get past jugular, but that’s the wrong way round.

As to those lamenting the prospect that a shrinking violet like Julia, or Tony, or anyone else with sufficient hide, ego and self-belief to be drawn to the Prime Ministership might be deterred from mixing with the masses by an occasional soaring sanger, I don’t think you have too much to worry about. Although, if Goon Show enthusiasts get on the bandwagon, there may well be second thoughts about public appearances:
