A very unattractive picture was painted, in Alf’s ever-lively mind, when he learned of the Greens wanting to let their hair down.
Crystal Gayle with her hair down? Well, just take a look at the pic on the right. Alf would have gone a long way to see her and her tresses in her hey-day as a country and western singer.
According to the German fairy tale, Rapunzel was something of a looker with long tresses too.
But Alf would rather be far away when the likes of Metiria Turei (the sheila at the top) let their hair down.
Hence he does not get too excited by news that the Green Party will be holding an auction behind closed doors to raise funds later this month.
