Give the Clown A Raspberry

The Clown of Campbells Bay, Andrew Williams the mad Mayor of North Shore is in the news again and for all the wrong reasons.

The Clown of Campbells Bay - Andrew WilliamsA woman who blew a raspberry at North Shore Mayor Andrew Williams has been issued a trespass notice, banning her from the shopping centre where the incident occurred.

Shirley Squire described the mayor as a “cowardly careerist” before blowing him a raspberry after he finished singing with a troupe during Chinese New Year celebrations at the Northcote Shopping Centre.

Days later, Sunnynook community constable Penny Rusbatch presented Miss Squire with a trespass notice, prohibiting the 74-year-old from “Northcote Shopping Centre and surrounds”.

“This is beyond persecution,” she told The Aucklander. “It’s positively sadistic.”

Surely the Police have got better things to do that issue trespass notices for people giving raspberries to The Clown of Campbells Bay. After all he has been doing exactly the same thing to the ratepayers of North Shore. Thankfully they have just a few months of having to put up the Clown.
