Too late for the Bansheegate?

So here’s a winnable fight for the Sack Vile Kyle/ Sack Alan Jones crowd.

Today Ten Breakfast presenter Paul Henry labelled PM Julia Gillard “a raving banshee”.

But if they do want to whip up a campaign to get him fired, they’ll have to move fast.

The show gets axed tomorrow.

Meanwhile, presenter Kathryn Robinson was putting a brave face on the show’s demise today, telling viewers: “We’re down, but not out.”

“No,” corrected Henry. “We are out.”

The end of term spirit went further, with Henry paying tribute to his colleagues: “Let’s face it, some of them are incompetent, but they’re lovely people.”

And newsreader Natarsha Belling? Not as tall as you’d think.

The show finished on something of a curious note too, with Paul Henry paying something of a tribute to the deputy leader of the opposition: “I’d like to dedicate the Breakfast program today to Julie Bishop – she’s suffered some slings and arrows but it’s all coming good now, Julie.”
