Melbourne’s new Lord Mayor Robert Doyle has decreed on 3AW this morning that Melbourne should not be a “bogan magnet” after expressing concerns about people coming into the City to get drunk.
Without wanting to commit municipal lÃ¨se majestÃ©, it could be argued the Right Honourable to be is frequently guilty of exactly the same thing at various high-class City establishments.
Proving that he’s going to go hard, he has also decreed the standard of buskers in the city to be not up to scratch, demanding their quality be controlled by the council.
Doyle was doing a victory lap on 3AW and received universal acclaim, including from his initial promoter Neil Mitchell who loves him long time. We can only wonder how long the love will last.
He revealed that Ted Baillieu called and left a message. He hasn’t yet returned the call. Ted might be waiting a while. Robert is a busy man.
