    • Bullshit, says the mayor to her councilors

      • It didn’t seem to be a good day for Wellington Mayor Prendergast at Wednesday’s meeting of her council’s strategy and policy committee. After an amendment to the city-wide alcohol ban was proposed by Cr Wain – to limit its extension to two suburbs where there was public support for it – the mayor instructed the councilors that, by living in the city voted 12th in the world in quality of life, they should “have the guts” to vote for the city-wide ban which she favoured.

      • he city council phoned me this week. It wanted to know what I thought about its plan for a city-wide drinking ban 24 hours a day and seven days a week. It wasn’t actually the council who called. It was a market research company, hired by the council. But the questioning were more or less unbiased, except when the researcher told me the police prefer a city-wide ban. However he didn’t push the council view.

    • The council encourages whisky-drinking while it says it wants to ban liquor
      • 18 Feb 2010
      • Wellington Scoop
      • The Wellington City Council seems to be in denial. Having created the happy, over-the-top mayhem that is Courtenay Place every weekend, it’s now trying to calm things down with a ban on liquor in any public place. It already has a liquor ban in the central city, as is evidenced by its over-sized signs on lampposts. But now it wants to extend the ban into the suburbs as well.

    • Ban the ban!

      • Central Wellington currently has a liquor ban in place on Friday and Saturday nights, prohibiting drinking in public spaces. This might seem draconian enough, but the council doesn't think so, and is planning to extend it.
