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:
Thanku to great students at Lyneham HS – represented school so well today at Q&A with @juliagillard. Bright, opinionated & confident

We hear rumours the child involved has been expelled.
