The leftists at the Auckland City Council look like they have dropped the ball yet again as property owners upset at a 30% downturn in business as a result of the controversial Queen Street upgrade are set to challenge the decision to introduce bus lanes and leave just one lane each way for cars.

One property owner's lawyer told the urban strategy and governance committee that the consultation process was a "Clayton's process, designed to give the appearance of the form of consultation without the substance".

Councillor Faye Storer gets it right when she says the bus lane issue has all the arrogant hallmarks of other central city botch-ups, such as the Queen St trees, Vulcan Lane and Khartoum Place.

Roll on October.
