The banner is a reference to a recent letter published in the Voice by “Naomi Clark” criticising Vincent councillor John Carey. Greens & Co owner Stuart Lofthouse is no fan of the council. Mayor Alannah MacTiernan had criticised the Voice for publishing the letter without checking the author’s bona fides (indeed, all attempts to contact the mysterious Ms Clark have failed).
“I think it is funny,” the mayor said when asked for her reaction to the banner. “I like this bit of biffo as it adds to the character of the street. I am also hoping it might trigger the Voice to acknowledge that having vent ‘her’ spleen, Naomi has sunk without a trace.”
