The Member for Grayndler, Anthony Albanese has been spotted deep in his electorate over the weekend to speak to a fellow Italian Rabbitohs supporter by the name of Tony Gambarino, on the day of his daughter’s wedding
Over a glass of red wine and some pasta, the former Deputy Prime Minister was encouraged to spill all about the current leadership rift in the Australian Labor Party.
This comes in the middle of an explosive week in Parliament as the leaders of all three major parties are put under the pump by scandal, polls and death threats.
While both factions of the ALP have insisted there is no tension within the ranks, media appearances in response last week’s budget proved yet again that Albanese and Shorten are not getting along.
Meanwhile, in a low-key Italian cafe hidden in the centre of Albo’s inner-west Sydney electorate, it appears the wheels are in motion for him to take back leadership.
Speaking to the prominent greengrocer and well-respected community figure, Albo was heard suggesting that maybe this was something he would have to sort out ‘like they did in the old country’.
Witnesses say there was a lot of nodding and hand kissing before Albo presented Gambarino with a signed Sam Burgess jersey.
“You go home now” said the father of the bride.
“I tell wife you say hello”
Albo last seen taking an emotive phone call in the leafy end of Norton street while smoking a cigar.
