Auckland City Council are hypocrites

The Auckland City Council are hypocrites .

[quote]Mark Venter, director of outdoor advertising company OTW, counted signs, flags, billboards and banners in Queen St one day in January and found just 10 of 140 "commercial advertising opportunities" he spotted were billboards.

Most of the spaces he noted were owned or controlled by the council, he said.

"It's completely hypocritical," said Mr Venter. "They are saying one thing and doing another."[/quote]

And in other news the Council hell bent on ramming their way through despite overwhelming oppositioon and submission against their draconian proposal have kept Mad Glenda Fryer as the chair of the panel reviewing the sumissions.

One councillor has resigned in protest from the panel as the council persists in riding roughshod over democracy.
