A very puzzling media statement came Alf’s way yesterday.
It was issued by an outfit called Concerned Citizens and it called for Invercargill residents to be banned from Parliament Grounds.
Such a ban would not matter a toss to the good people of Eketahuna North, so Alf did not pursue it.
He thought the Southland Times might delve further, however.
The Southland Times has become preoccupied with delapidated houses and – good grief – the menace posed by the mice they attract.
