Alf and his true-blue mates were dismayed by news of Crusher’s resignation as a Minister.
Fair to say, Alf’s dismay was tempered by the realisation – “hope” might be a better word – that this may well mean The Boss promotes him to the ministerial job that has been his ambition for some time.
But for now, those ambitions are being kept very private and for public purposes – well, the Member for Eketahuna North is declaring that he is devastated.
He is also highly disapproving of Labour’s leaping in to exploit Crusher’s plight.
Of course, that’s what one would expect from a bunch of lefties and greenies whose political aspirations far exceed their collective talents.
Hence they are apt to be desperate.
