At least he's out of Cabinet

George Hawkins has hit the news again with a private members bill to criminalize street prostitution on the streets of South Auckland Manukau City. What really amazes me is that despite having being a Mayor for nine years is that he does not realize that the South Auckland. Manukau City Council has the authority to control street prostitution through the by-laws. If George has shown himself to be so pig-ignorant about the powers of local government despite his lengthy experience in local government, what other obvious things didn't he know when he was in Cabinet?
