MP ridiculed over 'Islamic' cover-up
by Daniel Emerson
Federal Liberal MP Luke Simpkins has become the target of social media scorn after a high-level intervention to ensure 'Islamic' stickers were removed from the Leederville Train Station pedestrian overpass.
In a bizarre case of mistaken identity, the stickers were in fact spruiking a local nightclub – a fact lost on Mr Simpkins when he boasted on his Facebook page of having them painted over.
On November 5, Mr Simpkins wrote: "Last week I noticed black disks (sic) that appeared to be Shahada symbols. Thanks to the Transport Minister and his adviser for getting them painted over quickly after my call".
