FAILED: "... too big for Auckland"

  • This has been badly, badly, badly planned
  • It's a mess ... The event is too big for Auckland
  • The trains have been unbelievably bad
  • Frustrated passengers at Britomart station began chanting, "We want trains, we want trains", as they waited
  • Police warned people to stay away from the city centre
  • At least 2000 missed the ceremony as trains backed up on the tracks
  • Huge crowds built up at Britomart station in the central city as people waited for hours to catch a train home
  • Ended in anger and frustration as the city's public transport let them down

Punters are really pissed as Len's overhyped big event chokes at birth. And his much touted saviour of all, public transport fails in the starting blocks.

Awash in ratepayer and taxpayer cash for this event, Auckland City fails miserably at big event management.

Meanwhile Len parties on oblivious to the chaos around him. And is chauffeured to the stadium.
The world is in the house. Oh yeah!

Couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery, a total fail.

heh. I wonder if anyone's spending this morning thinking to themselves "Gee. Wouldn't it be a good idea to have a sports stadium on the waterfront."
