Michael Hill girl dreams of getting into chains

Georgina Beyer – the first transsexual MP and mayor in the world – has taken up a job selling jewellery in Masterton.

Ms Beyer, 52, sported the crisp and corporate black suit of a Michael Hill sales assistant in her first week in the job and said her return to the nine-to-five working world was “a step back to being normal, back to the coal-face, as it were”.

However, she is not letting the precious gems bedazzle her and is also eyeing a bid for the Masterton mayoral chains, depending on feedback and support for her bid.
