Christchurch council leader appears in #SingItKitty parody after prankster plays joke

First published in News

YOU might know him best as the leader of an under-fire district council.

But Councillor Ray Nottage has this week also taken a star turn in a famous television advert.

Cllr Nottage, who heads Christchurch council, has been immortalised in phone company Three’s commercial.

Click here to watch the parody of Three's #SingItKitty advert

The ad features a little girl and a cat perfectly lip-syncing to Jefferson Starship’s We Build This City as they patrol the neighbourhood on a bike.

Anyone who visits singitkitty.co.uk can post their photograph online to be a part of the advert.

And Cllr Nottage appears to have fallen victim to an internet prankster keen to play a joke on him.

Pity a great advert has been ruined by his face , the little girl is without doubt great, and could well do a better job of leading Christchurch council than Cllr Nottage

A grotesque video It speaks volumes about the growing unpopularity of the Leader. People roll their eyes when Christchurch Council is mentioned.
It appears that the Leader of the Council is now seen as a laughing stock.
No wonder the video was hastily removed.

Wow, did I roar with laughter, it really made my day - and I'm still chuckling now.This man - rumour has it - hasn't yet realised that although he may live in Christchurch, he doesn't actually own it! It isn't his company, it's a town that people live in and care about. Christchurch belongs to the people of Chistchurch and NOT to Ray Nottage. I so wish he'd give SOME consideration to the people, buildings, wild life etc etc that are here, and were here long before he was!!!!!! Many of which will still be around when he's wrecked the place, done the damage and moved on!
Come on now Ray, be a half decent guy and start showing more consideration to the rest of us instead of appearing to be feeding your own ego . That video summed up very nicely just what people are thinking. Not good for you - or for the residents.

Strange that, all the others I made are still live, including one of another Christchurch Councillor who loved it!

Just resign Cllr. Nottage. Do you not realise that you are, and have made Xch., a laughing stock ?
As well as desecrating the town....

Wonder on who's say it has been removed? Surely not on Councillor Nottage's request, this means if so he's lacking a sense of humour as well as his other faults!
