Andrew Little, National Secretary of the Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union (now E tu), three days after the tragedy said – [/size]“Every mine on the West Coast takes great care when it goes into production and I don’t think Pike River is any different from that. They’ve had a good health and safety committee that’s been very active. So there’s nothing before now that’s alerted us to any greater risk of this sort of incident happening than at any other time.” – Morning Report, November 22, 2010 –[/size]

Had a google but can't find.. don't suppose you have a link available SD?

Very contradictory of him if he did say that as I know he also said that the union had a "walk out" just weeks before the explosion over H&S issues. Something not adding up here..

If you think the last Government had the morels of the Waffen SS, as your posts do attempt to suggest, I'd suggest you've gone though the boundary of reality and are in too* deep to be healthy. Your posts are looking far more like political rants than they do exhibit any desire to see what genuinely is down there, what the real truth of what happened is or showing much sympathy for the families. Again.. lol.. look at the facts and the timeline KM.. Nationals unwillingness to resolve this incident and attempting to bury it under legislation is wrong, wrong, wrong. If you think it is unhealthy to despise a government that treats its citizens like they have then guilty as charged. However I would counter that anyone who swallows the gnats bullshit lines and believes we should all hide behind threats of liability is delusional beyond help.

 

Oh good golly. Now the Government are asrewipes for enacting the recommendations of an independent commission set up in response to the public wanting answers and change. No pleasing some people is there, as I said damned if they do, damned if they don't.

 

Just think of all that extra time you'll have now we have a Government more pure than driven snow. You'll have nothing to bitch about for 3 years....... but I suspect the Natz will continue to pop up frequently as the cause of all evil anyway. 

 

Oh, it's called the 'Health and Safety (Pike River Implementation) Bill'

make up your mind, which govt are you supporting/bagging now? Its hard to keep up with non voters ephemeral political views that change and contradict themselves from moment to moment.

 

Get back to your roots man.... and do nothing.

 

Not A Party (NAP) is a political party in New Zealand. The party advocates a peaceful transition to a society based on voluntary cooperation. The party's website states that they have no policies other than "honesty".[1]

The party fielded a candidate, Richard Goode, in the Mount Roskill by-election, 2016. In a press release, Goode stated, “My message to voters is just don’t.... I pledge that if elected, I’ll be a no show."[2] Goode won 40 votes or 0.24% of the total votes cast.[3] The party also supported Adam John Holland in the 2016 Auckland mayoralty election. Holland stated that if elected, "I won't do a single thing as mayor just as I haven't done a single thing for the past seven years of my retirement. Decisions shall be left up to the people, not an elected official in a farcical 'democratic' ceremony."[4]

NAP fielded a candidate in the Mount Albert by-election, 2017 seeking to encourage a boycott of the by-election and upcoming general election.[5] Not A Party has stated it will contend the 2017 general election, and also that it hopes that people do not vote in that election.[6]

As long as I have been alive NZ has only ever had one Government.

 

If you want to bow to your cult leaders dictate that you must push harder for a divided society then go for it but please don't assume everyone is that fucked up enough to think that will cause anything but more hungry, homeless, death murder kill and sh*t outcomes.

You have a boat.

She goes out with differing crew

She has the crew make calls, some they get right, some they don't

She changes configuration at times for differing conditions, again sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

She goes to Kawau but sometimes goes to the BoI.

She's one colour this season, a few season later she is another

Sometimes she is an utter pig, sometimes she is a dream

She costs a f*ck load of money

The entire time she is still your boat.

 

The Government is the Government.

You're talking about the differing groups inside the government. And the entire time I have been alive Labour and National, 2 private organisations, have been 2 of those groups.

 

You're also talking about dividing NZers, pitting one against another, distracting them from fighting what more often is a common enemy. Motorbike obviously agrees but has nothing, you can tell when he's dives into the socialists usual go to when they don't want to face reality or can't support their own argument, they go out of their way to do stop any discussion and if that doesn't work they deflect defect deflect, just like 5 year olds do when faced with concepts beyond their capability to understand.

Fish the last robot is still in there 6 years ago And they were no allowed to retrieve it Robots don’t climb over rocks and debris. Drones are no good as they stir up dust wich means the pilot can’t see orientation ,a maned team is the only way ,
