John "stroganoff" Murphy takes his last bite at the trough

This has not been widely announced, but our local MP, John "stroganoff" Murphy has "stood down" from his post of parliamentary secretary for trade.

The Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, praised Mr Murphy's "tireless appetite, his dedication to the work of the trencherman and his good humour and good table manners" and gave his unequivocal support for Mr Murphy to recontest the annual inner-west stroganoff eating competition.

Senator Arbib replaces another Sydney MP, John Murphy, who stood down yesterday from the post of parliamentary secretary for trade for family reasons.

If you ask me, Arbib stabbed Murphy in the back with a catering fork.
