A small confession: Alf is not averse to a bit of biffo, in appropriate circumstances.
Another confession: he happens to regard Paul Henry as fondly as he regards a moth or fly that has flown on a kamikaze mission into his whisky.
And thirdly, as a firm believer in human rights, Alf staunchly stands by a bloke’s right to be a bigot.
Accordingly he feels tempted to take a dim view of the fellow who has been accused of assaulting Paul Henry and who allegedly told police the television presenter was “a racist and a bigot who should expect consequences for his views”.
Guilt- it must be emphasised – has yet to be established.
