The Sunday Star-Times has skated defty around a bit of conjecture about our next Governor-General that it published last week.
On its website this morning Alf found a piece by a scribe called Hubbard who says our next governor-general has risen from humble beginnings to the highest post in the land.
Alf had hoped this high post would have gone to him.
But Jerry Mateparae got the job, and Hubbard says –
Everyone who knows Mateparae uses the same words to describe him: “Modest, quiet, a gentleman.”
Hubbard could have said the same thing about Alf, if things had gone differently.
But let’s go back a week.
The SST then was reporting some stuff by a Michael Field.
