Memory Eternal George Gair

georgegairVery sad to hear of the passing of one of the old school of National MPs, the North Shore’s George Gair.  He was one of the last of the gentlemen politicians, and one of the classical liberals that used to be a strong feature of National’s caucus but these days is in shorter supply.  One almost feels as if, with the death of the man, that way of life and way of public discourse is also itself dying.  Both shall be greatly missed!
