Sons and Daughters: Brian Edwards Interviews John Kirk

Television – 1979

He asked me if I would like him to read my hand? Which he did and he was astonishingly accurate.
– John Kirk
Anybody that was his enemy had well earned the right to be his enemy.
– John Kirk
It’s as true in my father’s case as it has been in other political leaders that the family suffers.
– John Kirk
When John Kirk, MP, was recalling the death of his father, he claimed that Norman Kirk on his deathbed received a card from Mr Muldoon, which said, 'Get well, Norm, a pensioner needs your bed'. The fact was that no such card was ever sent and the remark had been made in jest by Mr Muldoon publicly many months beforehand when Norman Kirk was in hospital for a minor operation on varicose veins ... a correction was broadcast in a following programme.
– Ian Cross in his book The Unlikely Bureaucrat
