Dopey Vic Crone told to take her signs down, again

Vic Crone is a bloody slow learner.

But what do you expect from someone chosen by the ‘brains’ trust of Michelle Boag, Nikki Kaye and Sue Wood.

A row over election advertising has revived with the Auckland Council again ordering the removal of billboards for mayoral candidate Vic Crone.

The removals have come as the Minister for Transport awaits legal advice on whether the council’s new bylaw is lawful.

Auckland Council in April ordered Ms Crone to remove advertising from two commercial billboard sites, which for the first time came under restrictions that used to apply only to hoardings on public land.  Under the restrictions, the earliest time election material is allowed to be carried is 6 August – nine weeks before voting ends in October.

Ms Crone said a second round of billboard advertising near inner-city Parnell had suffered the same fate.

“I could put advertising on the back of a bus and that would be fine, but a commercial billboard apparently is not fine,” she told RNZ News.

“I don’t understand that, it doesn’t make sense, and I don’t think it’s in the interest of the public in terms of understanding who’s running for mayor and it certainly doesn’t support freedom of speech.”

If Vic Crone doesn’t understand quite simple bylaws then she has no business standing for Mayor. If her idiot campaign team don’t understand it either then they should be refunding whatever amounts they are charging Vic Crone.

Only a political retard keeps on doing silly things time and time again.

No wonder Phil Goff thinks he will march almost unopposed into Auckland’s mayoralty.
