The following dinner engagement of
national importance appeared in yesterday’s Vice-Regal notes and on the
Governor-General’s website:

In the evening at Government
House Canberra, their Excellencies the Governor-General Major General
Jeffery AC CVO MC and Mrs Marlena Jeffery hosted to dinner the Leader of the
Opposition and members of the Shadow Ministry…

Sounds like a very jolly event. But we wonder, what
was on the menu? Particularly given Big Kim’s recent campaign to lose weight.
And what might have been discussed between the Major General and The Bomber and
his troops?

Suggestions, please, to our Vice-Regal correspondent [email protected]
