Hallowed tradition in the halls of Parliament has it that the Speaker, upon nomination to the chair, must bodily resist his election to that august position.

In like manner, Premier-Elect Barry O’Farrell is doing his best to bodily resist becoming the next Premier of NSW, including by use of the nubile bodies of little children: http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/fat-fingers-have-put-barry-over-a-barrel-20101023-16ykn.html

It is good to see that Mr O’Farrell places such great store by the traditions of our Westminster system of responsible government. Let us hope, that in government, he shall remember that emphasis on responsible government.
