A good sledge

This is a good sledge…for both sides of the sledge war.

A WAR is simmering war between the Education Minister and the ALP boss he calls “the work experience kid”.

In State Parliament last week, Adrian Piccoli referred to Labor’s youthful general secretary Sam Dastyari as the “guy doing work experience at Labor’s head office”. A scan of Hansard reveals the minister has made four such gags at Mr Dastyari’s expense since June 2010. The latest taunt was one too many for 28-year-old Mr Dastyari, who has sent the minister a letter of complaint, obtained by The Sun-Herald.

“I am writing to thank you for your ongoing efforts to raise my profile …” he wrote. “I had wrongly assumed, that after 16 years of opposition you would be too busy with ministerial commitments to provide a running commentary on my career.”
