Dick Hubbard announces his intention to stand for Auckland City Council to protect all those poor innocent lefties from the barbaric hordes set to rape and pillage the place when John Banks is elected Lord Mayor.
Adolf's only enduring memory of Big Ears' tenure as Mayor was that glorious cartoon which showed Hubbard shaking hands with Hucker. Hubbard was thinking "Motherhucker" and Hucker was thinking something similar, in the vernacular of Hone Harawira. Can you see this fellow running the city? Where has he been?
Gilbert and Sullivan could not have produced a better show than the race for control of Auckland Super City. John Bank's ribs will need physio for a month.
