READERS took to social media to defend Fat Bob and slam the council.
Angela Mcdermott posted on Facebook: “Only the Edinburgh council could come up with this ban.”
Elizabeth Gibson added: “Sort roads & pavements first instead of taken away a family traditional advertising at shop. So here’s hoping folk of Portabello sign petition as I will. Madness to bother about this.”
Willie Adams wrote: “So what about grocers who put their produce on crates outside their shops , is this banned as well? Think this takes up more space than fat bob, mind you they could put all this in the councillors brains as there is plenty of space there, Bloody halfwits.” Heather Henderson said: “Where I do agree with the billboard ban, I certainly don’t agree with this.”
