This goes out to all the dispossessed emos of Manners Mall, the forgotten victims of Wellington City Council’s new bus lane:

    Loved it.

    I thought this kind of passion for open space was what councils wanted.

    Now how many grannies will be killed by the buses?

    Hah very good.

    I’m not opposed. I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing actually, and might create more life and pedestrian activity there.

    Its great to see that The Standard’s commitment to public transport extends only to the point where it doesnt offend Emo’s. Im sure they can find somewhere else to hang out.

      Sarcasm, fool.

      And they have got somewhere else to hang out. Have you been through Glover Park on a Friday night lately?

      “Emo’s” – you mean Emos. Possessive and plural. Get it right.

      It’s a joke song. At the end it says it was performed at Fringe Bar. A comedy bar.

      Anyway, there is a valid debate over whether tearing up a pedestrian area is the best thing for helping public transport. They could have closed Dixon St to private traffic instead

    It will probably do the place some good. Manners mall is a hole.
