The biggest feet, red hibiscus shirt

Dear editor

I like Te Tuhi Kelly’s comment that political parties promote their people into roles in the public service even though they don’t have skills and experience in those roles. I read an old publication by Laurence J Peter called the Peter Principle – here are a few quotes:

I have been very interested from time to time in news of the steel North Sea trawler which was converted and refitted in Newfoundland and renamed Tiare Taporo – taking largely under false pretences the famous name of my family’s New Zealand kauri-built schooner owned by AB Donald Ltd of Auckland.
