    Aucklanders are the loneliest Kiwis

    Auckland Mayor John Banks is urging his residents to have a natter with their neighbours after a report rated the region's four cities as the worst in New Zealand for community spirit.

    Auckland's lacklustre rating was revealed in the latest ASB TopSpots report, which placed Dunedin top of 12 cities, with Rodney District second and Wellington third.

    Languishing in the bottom four places were North Shore, Manukau, Auckland and Waitakere respectively.

    The report is based largely on data from the Quality of Life Report commissioned by the 11 cities and one district council (Rodney), covering 56 per cent of the New Zealand population.

    TopSpots author Stephen Hart analysed the 200-page report and scored the cities according to criteria including a sense of community, feeling of trust, feeling of loneliness, contact with neighbours and civic pride.

    It's hardly surprising in a big city.
    If men had wings and bore black feathers, few of them would be clever enough to be crows.
