Keith Locke to run down Epsom main street naked
The Newmarket Business Association is paving the way to make it very easy for Green MP Keith Locke to deliver on his promise to run naked through the streets of Epsom if ACT MP Rodney Hide was victorious in Epsom on election night.
"We don't want our electorate to be the home of the first broken campaign promise. Hence the local business association is prepared to make it very easy for Mr Locke to deliver his promised goods," said Cameron Brewer, General Manager of the Newmarket Business Association.
Mr Brewer said Newmarket is the 'capital' of Epsom and Broadway is a straight and wide strip, ideal for such exposure.
"When Mr Locke is ready, the Newmarket Business Association will warn the faint-hearted, clear the footpath on Broadway from Two Double Seven to Khyber Pass Road, ensure there are the necessary officials, and provide a much-needed loincloth.
"Newmarket is home to the country's best shopping. We don't want Mr Locke's organics to frighten away any of our customers so we will provide some cover, albeit skimpy.
"It is important for their own credibility that politicians deliver on their promises. We are looking forward to Mr Locke taking a break from hefty coalition discussions this week and coming to Newmarket for some fresh air," Mr Brewer.
