Christchurch is a city in shock after Mayor Sideshow Bob announces that he will be seeking a third term in office.
Christchurch is reeling at the news that Mayor Sideshow Bob will be seeking a third term as mayor of the quake-devastated city.
'What would Tony (Marryatt) do without me?' said Parker. 'Who would he have his secret meetings with? He might get asked to pay back that $34,000 worth of back pay he promised to return. Remember - a vote for me and good local government means voting twice.'
Traci Wilson of Aranui said she was 'appalled' that Sideshow was standing for re-election.
'We've had earthquakes, Gerry Brownlee and CERA - and now this. How much longer does Christchurch have to suffer?'
Ms Wilson is still waiting for her quake damaged home to be repaired.
Dave 'Hendo' Henderson, a former property developer who was placed in bankruptcy in 2010, said he was 'delighted' that his good friend was standing for re-election.
'Christchurch deserves more of Bob like I deserve a good dose of the clap. And I could do with a few more million to get me back in the property game. I know that Councillor Sue Wells would vouch for me - like she did last time.'
Civil Defence said they were aware of Sideshow Bob's mayoral ambitions and were monitoring the situation closely.
'The situation is not unrecoverable.' a spokesman said last night. 'The solution lies in the hands of the good people of Christchurch - vote the clown and all his flunkies out of office.'
