Shadbolt reaches for Guinness

Invercargill mayor Tim Shadbolt is hoping to set a new world record for the longest interview. I have no doubt he'll nail it.

I have witnessed his breathing style first hand when (Warning: Name Drop 20 Words Ahead) I fixed an interview for a school mate way back in the 1980's when the old man appeared with Shadbolt, Tom Scott, Karyn Hay and others in a live debate on whether Life is a Sexually Transmitted Disease.

If Mayor Tim ever needed a back up trade besides concrete mixing, he'd make a damned fine didgeridoo player.
