WTF? Jim Bolger’s mates have got together and put a half page ad (including a list of who they all are) in today’s DomPost to wish him a happy birthday and to thank him for his many years of public service.
While not wishing to take anything away from the grand and generous gesture of friendship this most surely is I have to say it’s had the people in my office positively agog with interest and questions:
Is there some sort of code here about selling off KiwiBank?
Is Jim Bolger dying?
Are his friends saying it’s time Mr Bolger was Sir Jim?
Is he after a new job?
Or is Lucky Jim just lucky to have plenty of friends who want to spend so much money making him feel so loved up on his special day?
