Monty

Cultural icon Montgomery Burns appears again in an NZ election campaign.

Either in 1996 or 1999, someone abseiled down the side of quite a large building on Courtenay Place and ‘Mr Burned’ a huge (three or four storey high) Dick Prebble/ACT billboard – a beautiful, beautiful gesture. There was a picture in the Dom Post at the time which I should dig out from the library (no digital cameras back in those days). All of which goes to show what a brilliant (useful? authentic?) character Monty B is…

    Yes, ol’ ACT came to visit my old work – very suspicious of us they were, cos one way of access for absailers was via the balcony of our work – straight above the ACT billboard.
