Well, David Lange has gone to meet his maker only a few days after his cantankerous autobiography came out, leaving a rather sour taste in the mouths of many of those who were named in it. Not the best way to exit this world.
Anthony Hubbard’s portrait of the man is concise but not too brief, and worth reading. Lange did have his moments as Prime Minister. But I wonder how much of the his career will still be remembered in a 100 years time?
