I guess we accept the risk of caricature but I didn’t suspect Stuff’s photographer to be a frustrated cartoonist.

If this was an advert the Advertising Standards Board might condemn the DomPost for being unnecesssarily hurtful to my beautiful wife Catharine.  They’ve done sillier things.

Then we’d have to do a Minto, and say “thanks but no thanks – we believe in freedom of expression even when it is in bad taste”.

I hope your worth it Stephen:-)
For mine I admire you AND Cathy for acting on your beliefs. Most people don’t have the guts to.

Thanks Lindsay for a kind comment. It was a bad hair day.


Great protest. Even more effective because you were thrown out.

Cathy, you were unrecognisable! It was someone else, not you.
