Yeah I knew Lange.David Lange was also a very shallow type of guy, absolutely outstanding with rhetoric and quips and was a rock star on the world stage, but many who knew him regarded him as a total dickhead.
Jacinda I regard as lightweight but she has put on a really good show over this, and has come across as very genuine, so good on her, but I still think she is a lightweight.
Do I need to mention Norman Kirk? He was also a leader on the world stage for dragging our troops out of Vietnam, but otherwise a genuine strange bastard who along with Muldoon gave the rise of the need to drop FPP elections.
The common thread, all Labour Prime Ministers.
I left out Helen Clark, because she was no dickhead, nor lightweight, but a very cheap politician, but they all are.
My brother was a gifted artist. He did a piece of Art which a Parnel gallery thought was by one of the NZ Masters. He was fifteen.
The reason Lange got to see it, was that my brother failed UE art.
That was to do with his grade in English, nothing to do with the art. The master piece he submitted which a parnel gallery offered him sixty thousand for, had a boot print on it, by a UE assesor who must have trodden on it and not given a shit.
My mother took it to Lange and asked him to do something about UE accreditation ( the rules changed the following year).
All Lange said was "Give you six grand for it I really like the picture".
