The Model Governor

by | 10th, August 2004

‘THESE are dangerous times for Tasmania, which in the wake of Richard Butler’s departure must soldier on without an official representative of the Queen until a replacement can be found.

Horses for courses

A constitutional crisis beckons and nervous residents of the island are already asking who will break bread on their behalf with visiting nobs from overseas.

Our advice, sitting here in the Old Country with Her Majesty shacked up just a few miles away, is to act fast to plug this particular hole (and not in the manner favoured by Mr Butler).

We could recommend numerous Aussies who we have no doubt would be happy to return home to do their duty.

We think of the likes of Jono Coleman, Rolf Harris and Peter Andre or, on the distaff side, Germaine Greer, Kathy Lette and even dear Kylie Minogue.

But inspiration hits us in the form of the Mail, which reports that Sarah Ferguson’s niece Ayesha Makim has arrived to these shores with “model-girl pout, blonde tresses, endless legs and a love of the limelight that puts even Fergie to shame”.

We are sure the 18-year-old could be prevailed upon to give up her modelling contract with Storm and the spreads in Hello! magazine and return whence she came.

As the granddaughter of Major Ron and the niece of the Duchess of York, she certainly has the breeding to follow in Mr Butler’s footsteps.’
