ZenTiger Airs and Graces and Secret Agendas

High Priestess of the Green Party, Jeanette Fitzsimmons decrees that titles such as Sir have no place in front of names such as Edmund.

Helen Clark is probably relieved she isn't up for an honorific. They would have to tighten the laws on slander and vulgar language.

Mr Cullen, oops Dr Cullen, recalls with fondness the time he handed out cash awards for excellence, rather than sticking a fancy title like "Dr" in front of anyone with a History Degree.

I'm also wondering if the same people, who step back and pay full respect to Maori honoring their rangatira with name and ceremony, suddenly spew forth the opinion that when it comes to our cultural heritage and tradition, they think such honours are divisive and cancerous. Peasants.

And I'm left quietly chuckling as John Key moves forward by looking back.

Masterful.

Another item of the secret agenda ticked off?

Keep it up good Sir.
