Meant to write about this at the time. Tuesday evening, the top two headlines on Newsroom were as follows:
CURRENT HEADLINES at 5:57 pm, 05 Apr 2011
QUAKE RECOVERY: Dole Numbers Unknown – Social Development and Employment Minister Paula Bennett says she has not sought advice over how many Christchurch people are headed for the dole queue once the earthquake relief package expires in eight weeks. MORE
QUAKE RECOVERY: Health Risks – Health Minister Tony Ryall has acknowledged there is a public heath risk from Christchurch’s broken sewerage system but says he has received no advice to take extra preventative measures such as mass immunisation. MORE Related: CCC
Remember back in the dark ages when Ministers had some initiative? Remember when we elected leaders to lead? Could some brave public servants in the relevant ministries, if you still have jobs, please do the MPs jobs for them as well, and get these clowns the advice that they need? We the public would much appreciate it. Cheers.
