THE Convoy of No Confidence, which was headlined in today’s “Canberra Times” as “City braces for convoy chaos” and was expected to create massive traffic delays, has seen two early morning convoys roll through Canberra with no disruption. Another convoy is expected to drive along Northbourne Avenue to Parliament House by 10am.
So far, there are reports of only 170 trucks.
“CityNews” snapper SILAS BROWN, who protectively rode his push bike to Parliament House to avoid the traffic earlier this morning, reports not seeing a single truck in the vicinity.
[box] CONVOY OF NO CONFIDENCE TWEETS:
@Craig_Harvey: I hope they do this convoy thing again, I’ve never seen the roads so clear
@kanchun_dutt: Very dissapointed with the truckies’ Convoy of No Confidence. Made it to work on time with no probs. Not the plan truckers. Thanks for nowt.
@m0nty: I will only get excited by the Convoy of No Confidence if one of their trucks transforms into Optimus Prime http://t.co/9wDlJWk
@leahdwyer: I rode my bike wearing my football boots and mismatched socks! Embarrassing but slightly less than riding with a #convoync that didn’t show
@popebrentus: Gee, I’d never have guessed this would be a flop! RT @CPOACT Convoy of no confidence numbers are lower than forecast #auspol
@chrisarneil: Traffic update: The Convoy of No Self-confidence will consist of one Mitsubishi Lancer with me in it driving to work
@tuxedoangus: “Convoy of no confidence?” More like “Convoy of no brains!” Am I right, am I right?!
@WhistleFan1992: The Convoy Of No Confidence is the most gut wrenchingly retarded thing I have ever seen Australians do and it makes me very sad
@zulubravo: So the idiots in the convoy of no confidence think that the government is communist. Maybe they should have finished high school. #convoync [/box]
