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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
