Hicks from the Sticks.....

There was a mixed reaction tonight to the Government's announcement that the titles of Dames and Knights are to be restored to the New Zealand honours system.

[From Mixed reaction to reinstatement of titles - National - NZ Herald News]

I'm not sure whether to squirm with embarrassment as a New Zealander or smirk (perhaps a little too smugly to be sure) at the parochialism of it all.
