    Ive released, woops I mean Ive recieved another email from a very reliable source. There was a meeting (I dont know I wasn’t there) where it was revealed Labour organised Pike River disaster, Chch earthquakes and the recent Rena grounding. Now rest assured there will be a full inquiry into all these allegations but you must vote me back in on Nov 26 in order for this to happen. Its going to be a huge undertaking that will be a long and slow process, and no doubt costly but it just so happens Ive secured a buyer for some surplus to requirement junk like a few power companies and stuff.

      We/they could have kept the oil heaters going so that within 24 hours the oil would have been runny enough to be taken off on the barges available from those purpose built ones on offer. If dis posing was a big problem you dig a big wide hole, line it with heavy plastic and fill. (Better on land than on-shore.) Thus oil gone within4872 hours, before the storm. (Now the oil has still not started heating!)
      See. There is an answer according to the interview on Campbell Live.

  2. How many long and slow processes are there now?

    Christchurch earthquakes.
    Pike River mine
    Rena spill.
    Repayment of overseas borrowing.
    Wrecking Housing New Zealand.
    Laying off public sector workers.

    remember that episode of south park where there is a series of disasters and the CEO of BP keeps releasing videos saying things like “what should I do, should I have not listened to my advisors…. they’re my advisers. What should I do?”

    I’m sure John key will adopt a similar approach.

    “We are working on a range of solutions” blah
    “We have a lot going on …” blah blah
    ” .. and that is part of it” blah blah blah

    yeah well of course it’s going to be a long and slow process now, now that you’ve waited a week before doing anything

    Less talk and more action was needed here, like in the four days of fine weather after hitting the reef.
    Maybe this whole episode should be called “Keyrena”

    I don’t think New Orleans has had a proper Madre Gras since Katrina.
    Not to despair, maybe the drunken 20 somethings that go to Mt Manganui for New Years won’t know the difference and they’ll probably vote National again.

    “Long slow process….but in a 100 thousand years, give or take 20 thousand, you won’t even know it happened.”
