first_imgMountain Scene 10 March 2016Family First Comment:  More success in our campaign!Queenstown’s council is considering slapping $300 fines on offensive Wicked campervans.Following the story in last week’s Scene, council regulatory boss Lee Webster says Wicked Campers is breaching the district plan by displaying “sexually explicit, lewd or otherwise offensive content” on vehicles.If the vans’ slogans – such as “The best thing about oral sex is five minutes of silence” – don’t comply, and the campers remain on local roads, Wicked might face fines, Webster says.The council confirms it has sent a letter to the company.Webster says: “I do want to give them the opportunity to respond before I consider taking further legal action.”The council wants Wicked to provide a list of its slogans so the council can say what doesn’t comply.Webster says the council’s policing will be “reactive rather than proactive”.Wicked doesn’t have a great track record of responding – including to this newspaper.The campervan company has continually ignored National MP Dr Shane Reti, Family First NZ boss Bob McCoskrie and members of the public.The council clampdown is a win for McCroskrie, who last week maintained it was within Queenstown council’s power, under its signs policy, to ban offensive signs.Reti tells Mountain Scene he and Associate Tourism Minister Paula Bennett are working on a campaign aimed at Wicked Campers.http://www.scene.co.nz/council-cuffs-lewd-slogans/327362a1.pageClampdown on offensive camper slogansOtago Daily Times 10 March 2016  A clampdown is in the wind for Wicked Campers sporting offensive slogans in the Queenstown Lakes district.The district council confirms it is considering $300 fines.Council regulatory manager Lee Webster said Wicked Campers was breaching the district plan by displaying ‘‘sexually explicit, lewd or otherwise offensive content” on vehicles.If the vans’ slogans did not comply, and the campers remained on local roads, the company could face fines, Mr Webster confirmed.The council had outlined this to the company in a letter.Mr Webster – who said the council’s policing of the rule would be ‘‘reactive rather than proactive” – said: ‘‘I do want to give them the opportunity to respond before I consider taking further legal action.”Wicked did not respond to requests for an interview.

Adeleke is just coming to watch. He should watch as much as he can before the fight begins, otherwise he’d have lost the opportunity because I will daze him like he’s never been dazed before,” he said.The Lagos-born boxer, who caught the eye at GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 3 but was not selected because he was a year too young, explained that he has been undergoing rigorous training and following dietary instructions to ensure that he is in premium condition for the fight, which is one of the eight scheduled to hold at the event.All eyes will, however, be on the headline bout, which will see African Boxing Union (ABU) lightweight champion, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph, defend his title against the very dangerous Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu, West African Boxing Union (WABU) champion. The bout, which has been dubbed “Fight of the Decade”, is the peak of the rivalry between the two boxers since their amateur days.Both remain undefeated and are ranked as the best in the division. Other big names slated for action are Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde, WABU welterweight champion; Ridwan “Scorpion” Oyekola, national super featherweight champion; Adewale “Masevex” Masebinu, national light heavyweight champion; Kabiru “KB Godson Towolawi; former national light heavyweight champion; and Tope “TP Rock” Musa.The event will also stage an all-female duel, with Cynthia “Bobby Girl” Ogunsemilore take on Aminat “Smart” Yekini in a super featherweight challenge bout.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Highly rated bantamweight boxer, Opeyemi “Sense Adeyemi”, has boasted that he will be the next national champion in his weight division after his fight with Sadiq Adeleke at GOtv Boxing Night 20, which holds on 12 October at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium, Lagos.The 19-year old, who was voted best boxer at GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 4, has described himself as a “big deal,” the reason he has remained undefeated since turning professional.In a telephone chat yesterday, Adeyemi said his opponent is coming to the venue for sightseeing, as he has no chance of winning.last_img read more
