Uh, oh. That’s not like Lyn, Alf thought when he heard she had agreed to do some apologising.
He is sure she would apologise if she got something wrong, of course.
But she wouldn’t be saying sorry – surely – just because somebody had been offended by something she said.
In this case it sounded like the apology indeed was about to be delivered because somebody had taken offence.
The Lyn being talked about in this post is Lyn Provost, Auditor-General and someone with whom Alf has a nodding acquaintance.
The offended party is Sonny Tau, who apparently was affronted by comments she made when criticising the amount of Whanau Ora funding spent on administration.
