Natural Event, Manmade Disaster.
The Tree, is a tree along the West East cycleway leading to the Peterborough St footbridge in Hagley Park. Its history is as the meeting point for the University of Canty Rugby team when they were still at the "Arts Centre".
I nominate The Tree, as the tree to hang the bastards responsible for this disaster from.
Yeah cause it's all about rates, in the city that many can't flush their loo for over 17months now, if they still have a house.
Of course Eject Button didn't read the constitution of the Council owned company she was a Director of.
Edit - as always Ian said it better.
Good news about the Marae.
Any word on Rapaki & Ruamoko rumblings?
Any chance of the Joe Bennett solution?
Roger was on the Telly tonight. He doesn't look well, or that could have been the company, CERA or Gerry either way not doing what he normally does.
He was hired to be himself, he hasn't done that.
I suspect he can't quite deal with bellicose proclaimations.
The expense isn't his salary, but the loss of a city as a Isaacs & Brownlee run riot.
Check out the bridges in the City. Harper & Bealy Ave is looking very dodgy with lots of broken bits.
I don't believe the sudden rush from Brownlee & Isaac reported today. It's been leaning since September. I'm waiting for the building rush on Hagley Park for Hospital and Police expansions.
The Cordon is just Christchurch Coolaid. Had CCC CD or CERA addressed the largest threats first repair could begin. Their philosophy is for easiest first and hardest last. So slow and painful.
Disater Recovery has a few guiding plans. One key is that the Response and Recovery teams be totally different people.
The Cordon highlights why. People can't change from past actions that were the right thing to do in the initial response. They won't see the changing need and so keep "Blowing air into the lungs of their breathing patient".
CERA took on the CD team and is still in Response mode and can't change out of it.
No it wouldn't.
What of the electrocuted Roofer? These cordonds have saved no-one.
This position would require a basic inversion of our current process.
Firstly remove the largest threat first, not the easiest.
Blow up the big buildings, use Artillary if explosives can't be safely laid by engineers. This is the tried and true war recovery action.
Strap masonry, don't brace it. This way it'll rock n roll, not bash itself up.
Our environment has been designed to milk the Insurance industry for Feltchers.
Newcastle guys came over and campaiged for open access to the City Centre, as their fenched off city died due to cordons.
It didn't get through.
No-ones mentioned Roger Sutton for Mayor. He's harder to find these days than Waldo ever was.
