Alf remains bemused – and, let’s face it, highly disappointed – about how come we Nats failed to secure an even bigger majority at the election.
Then he spotted news of the group of young men who sparked a night-time search after taking to the Hutt River on lilo-type rafts after a drinking session.
Wellington district operations manager, Inspector Mike Wright, said the group of 10 men, in their teens and early 20s, had gone into the water near the waterworks about 1pm on Saturday, heading towards the gorge. One was wearing only shorts and socks.
Police were called about 8pm when the group became separated and several members were reported missing.
Mr Wright said the men had been drinking, had no lifejackets, and were on unsuitable lilo-type devices.
These lads obviously have something missing in the common sense department.
And those of them who are eligible to vote – Alf is willing to wager – voted for Labour, the Greens or the Peters mob.
