Break out the champagne. Pull your weeping family members out of their beds and tell them the wonderful news and that their worries are finally over. For the Herald in a headline article, advised the glorious news that Millie Holmes is back in New Zealand, currently under quarantine lockdown.
Thank God, thank God. Let the church bells ring out, let Jacinda issue a statement calling for a public holiday; let…oh it doesn’t matter.
But why, why, why does the Herald think this utterly insignificant woman is newsworthy? Her sole claim to fame is that literally, before most New Zealanders alive today were born, Paul Holmes was very briefly married to her mother.
Whoever in the Herald thought this absolutely nothing event to be newsworthy should be publicly flogged as a lesson to others in the regrettably fast fading newspaper industry.
