New Year Honours List 2013

It’s that time again when having a Queen has some payback – the New Years honours list.

It’s nice to see Paul Holmes recognised for his services to Broadcasting and the Community. ?Not many would argue that’s undeserved.

Another one “long in the making” is Owen Glenn?for putting his money where his mouth is. ?Shat on from a great height by the Labour party, this man was bigger than that and continues to put hard cash into New Zealand.

Apart from the obvious celebrities, it has someone on the list, without whom – in a matter of speaking – this blog would not exist.

After a tough year, and after a life time of service to the community, well done?Mr John Lindsay Slater, JP,?ONZM.
