Moving to New Zealand because you think it’s a safer, more community spirited place? Maybe you were influenced by Conde Nast‘s recent announcement that Auckland is the world’s friendliest city?
“This year’s number one world ranking is a big jump up from Auckland number 16 spot in 2013.
“The people are friendly, and their humor and view on life is something to aspire to attain,” one reader said.
Other readers described Auckland as a “gorgeous” city on the water with clean air, fresh food and amazing culture..”
Readers of agglomeration local newspaper site Stuff.co.nz obviously don’t rate Auckland as highly, this is the result of the site’s own poll
Take a look at the above video uploaded yesterday ago from West Auckland (incidentally, this is also scene of the random street killing of Head Hunters MC associate Connor Morris, whose funeral is being held today). Connor, who died from a machete blow to the back of the head, was walking to a local service station with a group of mates when they were attacked. His death was one of spate of violent deaths in the area. Police have yet to make any arrests.
It was uploaded by someone who saw a road rage incident outside a corner store. “Just another day in the west”
“Witnessed a man receiving a few “Good Ones” to the head and not retaliating from well you decide, while pulling into get my milk this morning. I thought I had better get this as filming as often stops any more violence. Just another day in the west AK. Dairy staff very professional. I believe the incident actually started outside the bakery next door. There is some rather good profanity around 1.28 not for me to say sample worthy.” source
