It’s been a waste of time, going to the NZ Herald site today – or any other NZ media site – for the latest news.
Having had no approach from officials about his willingness to accept a knighthood – or even a lesser gong, dammit – Alf knew bloody well there was nothing in the New Year Honours for him.
So the list was not worth reading, even to find out who had won the honours that persistently are being denied him.
To be honest, as Mrs Grumble would attest, Alf especially did not want to find out who had won those honours.
He shows a nasty vindictive streak on these occasions.
Not even Graham Henry can be considered more deserving.
