Careful what you say, Dick!

Many thanks to a friend of ours who would like to share some humour with our readers, courtesy of Cr Richard Simpson of Action Hobson:

Simpson was questioning Lesley Max of Save Auckland’s Tree during the extraordinary Auckland City Council meeting on Tuesday evening when he asked the following question (para-phrasing by the way):

Simpson: Council has used sunlight controls to allow more light to focus on the trees in the Auckland Domain. Do you think we should be looking at sunlight controls to aid the trees on Queen St?

Witty C&R Councillor: What!! You want to pull the buildings down Richard?!?

Councillors and the public started roaring with laughter while Simpson started to look incredibly embarressed. It seems Hubbard isn’t the only Dick that says dumb things.
