Quote of the week – John Banks

Banksie is the man.

[quote]Auckland City Mayor John Banks said last night that, despite the inconvenience, he would welcome the sight of heavy rigs jamming Queen St “in the spirit of free enterprise and democratic protest”.

The former National Party police minister invited Aucklanders to consider delaying their everyday business for several hours as the truckies fill the city centre in protest against “a Government with a death-wish”.

“I love big trucks so I’ll take 10 minutes to give them some moral support and to see their big trucks rumble up Queen St,” he said.[/quote]
