    I see the Herald on line “Sir Paul knighted”
    Another fail as that would mean he was knighted twice. Paul squared perhaps.
    They have since replaced that article.

    He looked happy and at peace with the world yesterday.

    Not a bad way to go out if his health continues to deteriorate.

    • Mitch82

      Yup. Really hoping he can get through it, and hoping that’s not a bit of a pipe dream.

      Older people probably remember him for particular issues, I’m just young enough to remember him in the same light as Judy Bailey. If she’s the Mother Of The Nation, he could possibly be the Father.

      • Morrissey

        Does Judy Bailey know that?

        • Mitch82

          Who knows, it was the 80’s, lots of drugs and sexual freedom.

          • tarkwin

            That’s my Judy Bailey fantasy finally killed off.

    One of the characters of our time. He has riled me enough on several occasions to turn off the radio or TV but love him or hate him Holmesy wears his heart on his sleeve and that’s no bad thing in the current shallow journalistic world. No one else in TV comes within a country mile of him. Would TV One have had their problems with Close Up if Holmes had still been presenting it? He would have seen Campbell off years ago.

    Lets not forget his work for Paralympics & Starship either and his long battle against illegal drugs. That work alone is worthy of a knighthood.

    Onyer Sir Paul.

    Give that man a DB!

    • Morrissey

      Did you read what he wrote in the Herald last Waitangi Day? I presume that was one of the things that riled you.

      • Gazzaw

        Can’t recall Morrissey but now is not the appropriate time to be debating that. Yesterday was a day that allowed Holmes & his family an all too rare opportunity of late to celebrate his successes. Let’s leave it at that.
