Fish­nets wax-snapped

The Saturday Paper - - Diary -

No doubt the Poms will be shat­tered to see the tail of the cur­rent high com­mis­sioner, his ex­cel­lency Alexan­der Downer.

At the end of Jan­u­ary, fresh from Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions, spon­sored by Wool­mark, LendLease and Bun­nings, Fish­nets posted on his Twit­ter feed, without cap­tions, a cou­ple of snaps with him grin­ning ex­cit­edly at ac­trines Dame He­len Mir­ren and our own beloved Ni­cole Kid­man. He even had Ni­cole by the arm, with a spell­bound look on his face.

Fur­ther re­search re­veals that his ex­cel­lency was in the com­pany of wax­works fig­ures – but, hey, that’s no rea­son not to get ex­cited.
