I learned to dislike him, too. Not only was he the only one of our class who looked like a private-school boy, he had brains. He could — and probably should — have stayed at school and gone to uni. His father, however, wanted him to sign on as an apprentice aircraft mechanic, and the rest is history — the history of Australian industrial relations.

After Honours in economics I took a course in public administration. Then, after a stint as a bookkeeper at Noble’s, a providential scholarship flew me to a mind-expanding, life-changing MBA in Chicago. Even more than St Barnabas’, this was my Damascus Road.

I went by myself and was immersed in the society of fellow students as well as the classes.

I was manifestly more comfortable with ‘hers’ than with ‘his’. The Jolliffes paid for the wedding of course, but also for the honeymoon and the deposit on our flat.
