'"Badly talented" buskers on Doyle's hit list'

There is one busker I see around the place regularly who really makes me cringe every time I hear him. I cross the road to avoid him because I hate his singing.
All the same, I don't like our new Mayor's plan to ban bad buskers from the city.
Apparently Robert Doyle also said, 'I don't want the city to be a bogan magnet.'
I don't like the sound of that very much. He's basically saying he doesn't want working class people around.
The Age's article is here.

Agreed. Also, choosing how people express themselves artistically, banning those who don't meet a given standard (even if they are terrible) has its own problems.
