The rest of NZ should be concerned: this is a precedent-setting situation that will be applied to every homeowner’s land insurance. It effectively renders land insurance near non-existent and building insurance full of get-outs.Banks will now start to lobby I would imagine: people will walk away from their properties. Resolving this must be a primary election issue. Fuck resilience.
In investigating our own insurance, It is certainly not worth considering insurance any more any time soon. Just as the Govt and Council up here dealt with Aucklands leaky buildings. Permits mean nothing. Houses devalued The get outs are phenomenal.
Keep up the good investigative work guys. Keep bringing it out in the open. Force change. I know that years ago Papanui had sinking parts and only due to perseverence was a relatives home raised . That would have been at least 200mil and they had installed one of those concrete stormwater drains right beside it.
Chchch is still the homebake capital then!:- )
Still, had morphine for the last few days up here. Live and well in our Hospitals up this way.Trouble is pathetic paracetamol when you exit. What's that about eh? ;)
It’s scary to think just how many square meters of land must be dedicated to my coffee habit, somewhere out there.
Ha! And how few is needed for my pain relief in hospital this week with so many names I don't know which ones I had :)
It’s been heartening to see so many non-Chch people so angry after watching that Campbell Live piece. It would be even nicer if it meant something changed.
I noticed in that clip that the British guy said the evidence was out there that John Campbell couldn't verify. John also quickly responded that they would talk. Hope that reveals more tonight.
who then has liability for the repairs that have already been done being up to standard?
In front of the TV cameras and photographers, he pitched in to help with a mop in the chemist.
Smile and wave, smile and wave..... .
What's a zinger?
“The tools are broken!” just means one hasn’t learned to use them.
So what I get from people’s perspective on here is the Twitter has many interpretations, uses, problems, and can be almost addictive. Plus, as a tool in relative infancy, the problems are now coming to light that users feel warrants some sort of control. With such widespread contact with people, perhaps it needs personal scrutiny that helps those who have problems with others on it. Maybe some sort of plan could be devised amongst yourselves to encourage others to join in and start by tweeting to others the rules in the plan. Pyramid like, because that is how I visualise it.
I also note to myself ,it really isn’t my cuppa. I like that you all want to stay connected though. put you at the forefront of whats happening next. My limited time at the mo ( probably pleases many :) meant I only just got to read David’s fine piece of writing. I like that it’s the first thing I’ve read about CD (although I have read here) and will probably be the last but it was a worthwhile read. He obviously knew her well and wrote of her warmly and honestly. That’s the sort of thing I can read about suicide. Someone who knows them can share their love for a person, purely.
Oh shit, sorry kracklite, didn't mean to fuk up.
app which allowed participants to write a fantasy Shorty script, by taking a line at a time.The results were, frankly, incredible.
I've watched a Star Wars movie done in the same way except shot on film by many contributors from around the world. It was great, cant remember where we got it from but.
The pileon is a nuanced phenomenon that in some cases is a legit protest campaign and in others a nasty exercise in ostracism and shame.
And? who polices those cases? New world Order? The Human Race has always had an ugly side. We have just found more ways to exercise that freedom. Visually ,more ways to experience it , mentally, more ways to engage with it, but always has had an ugly side.
I do believe though ,if and because it's so, we have computers in Schools, like swimming ,if you learn to swim safely, you wont drown.
