    It was the best of times for the hat makers. JFK had to come along and spoil the party

    Just three year election cycles in New Zealand here is the Depression era .

    A similar vintage photo was used in the NZ Wellington-based newspaper today page A7 with the headline on M.J." 'Savage voters ignored slur of reds and poisoned chocs'."

    In 1935 Wellington's papers watched on as Michael Joseph Savage became the country's first Labour prime minister.
    We could certainly do with a genuine 'most-beloved' leader in NZ right now.
