This story needs some fleshing out. I suspect the specter of Hamilton still casts a shadow here.
Campbell has done really well in covering Christchurch.
As for Aucklanders, send us some more strong young people, we'll give them a trade and a new future.
Colins isn't the Attorney General, but this ugly business does undermine the fabric of our legal system.
A Constitutional crisis in a country without a constitution or firm rules for appointing Judges.
I think I would quite like a follow up mini-series. There are some good stories, like the $3K Winz workers. These are the guys & gals we need and it is working.
Buildings are going up and infrastructure is getting fixed. This is a 10-20 yr project, there is no quick fix.
Would it be positive to offer $3k for the unemployable to leave Christchurch? This may sound callus, but if they haven't picked up a full time long term job by now in Christchurch, they won't in the future and the city no-longer has the facilities it once had.
I don't watch CTV any more these days, but being barred by the Police and Dept of Internal Affairs from reporting on the CTV building service for PM Abe is, odd to say the least.
Absolutely agreed, and as I'm over 120kg, being a weightless rage doll was a new and novel experience.
We've stopped peeing in the garden now, but still please don't let the kiddies play in puddles or floods in Christchurch.
Sorry to hear that Alice. I find flowers in the Road Cones a beautiful thing (except if they're from my garden). Look after yourself out there.
Len is Murray Horton, isn’t he?
I’ve met Monee many times, sometimes a she is a homeless man in a crumpled suit liberated from a now demolished Hotel. And it was good to see the strength of the elderly displayed which was so very true. It misses the overwhelming compassion and genuine love simply everyone had for their fellow man for the best part of a year.
The cardboard cutout skinhead is too contrived, but still holds a truth in that only the dozen or so total scum still in the city took such liberties, rather than liberating beer it should have been those emergency generators. Christchurch’s crime rate in the wake of the quakes was pretty close to zero.
I was witness to a high court case being concluded at a bus stop next to a rubbish bin, about July 11. Everyone knew the score at that stage and a quick decision was a good decision.
Not comparable to when a City falls, and it isn’t long enough to show how time impacts on us all..
I did find it an emotional experience all the same and glad it was made.
So we can marine farm on our own land in the sea?
What happens to land titles if the sea level rises, do we all get blue water title and riparian rights over the old home section?
The Sir Dougy Graham award goes to - Sideshow Bob.
As for John Hamilton & Civil Defence. Johnny is as Deserving as Sideshow. Civil Defence must be disestablished and roll its functions into the NZDF Reserves. This will free up another night on the Probus calendar.
