Hi neighbours, The Green Party's Chloe Swarbrick is the new MP for the Auckland Central electorate. The 26-year-old beat Labour's Helen White by fewer than 1000 candidate votes after consistently polling third. Auckland Central was the only electorate won by the Greens, but the party will get a further nine MPs on the list after taking out 7.6 per cent of the party vote.
Hope all cars on the Mount Albert road from Honolulu cafe up until three kings are safe as saw one lunatic wearing a yellow tshirt running on the pavement banging either a stick or something like a belt on cars and fencing in the neighborhood.
Auckland skies will soon be alight with fireworks displays.
With Guy Fawkes looming, the event sparks ongoing debate over the use of fireworks.
Auckland Council and a range of national organisations have renewed calls to ban the private use and sale of fireworks after a parliamentary select committee decided in August to leave regulations unchanged.
Some people will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Day, held to commemorate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
Should fireworks be banned?
