Travel to see the All Whites play on Friday 30 May with a pre-purchased match ticket. Kick-off is at 7.30pm, and gates open 6pm.

Auckland’s motorways and roads are expected to be busy as Aucklanders make their way out of town for the long Queens Birthday weekend. Travelling by public transport to the game is the recommended option, travel on trains and the Northern Express is included with your match ticket.

Plan your travel early and keep your ticket for the return trip.
Regular bus services will operate as usual.

Trains:
Travel on trains up to three hours before the game starts and until the last train of the day by presenting your pre-purchased event ticket.
Additional trains will operate to Penrose Station, which is walking distance to the stadium.
Train services will be busy so plan ahead and travel early.
On Friday night the last train from Penrose Station to Britomart is 11.16pm. The last train to the south is at 12.29 on Saturday morning.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>

On Pacific Spying

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese. On the side, the Key government has also been using the security services to gauge the chances of Trade Minister Tim Groser landing the top job at the WTO... More>>
