Councillor wants Dunedin bottle ban
31 August 2006
A Dunedin councillor has called for the banning of bottled beer in the city, saying such a move would deprive the “Hizbollah of the South” from a supply of missiles.
Cr Lee Vandervis has proposed the new bylaw to curb street violence, which led to 56 students getting arrested two weekends ago, the Otago Daily Times reported.
“Getting rid of the of the missiles would obviously be a very sensible thing to do. It would save hundreds of thousands of dollars in clean-up costs and, most importantly, improve safety on the streets,” he said
