No time for a full review, but with no disrespect to Lloyd Geering, what exactly has he done to be seen as one of the 20 greatest living New Zealanders (being granted The Order of New Zealand), except face a heresy trial 30 years ago?
I’m not being nasty – not got a thing bad to say about the man. Just I honestly can’t think of what he has done of national importance since then.
Even though I am not personally familiar with Dr Doreen Blumhardt, I can see why she would be included with her decades of services to the arts at the highest level. I just can’t work out Professor Geering’s award. Sure for any of the lesser awards, but the supreme award i meant to be for extraordinary service which has touched the nation so to speak.
Anyway the full Honours list is here. Comment away on them!Tags: New Zealand
