I fought hard for, and feel passionately about keeping the Northern Rivers Gasfield Free. I’m no apologist for Metgasco or the National Party.
I was standing near Jenny Dowell when she said she’d emailed her thanks to Thomas George and Metgasco’s CEO after the buyback offer was announced.
And I was thinking, what grace, what dignity, even in a moment of triumph to keep playing the ball, not the man. To be civil and polite equally with all sides of the debate. And I thought, how lucky am I have to role models like these.
Jenny Dowell. Annie Kia. Boudicca Cerese, Meg Nielsen, Rosemary Joseph and so many other gentle women, with so many strengths, including the power to be truly gracious, whether in defeat or victory.
