The New Zealand city of Christchurch was hit by its first destructive earthquake in September 2010, and a second quake in February 2011 that killed 185 people.

Thousands of residents have left due to the destruction of houses and jobs, and many others are still living in damaged houses or in overcrow ...

It seems the announcements today were something of a cock-up, with misinformation and just plain wrong information out there, largely because things were announced in a half-assed fashion.  I’d love to believe it was just because the Government (and Hekia Parata in particular) is incompetent, and maybe I’m just getting too old and cynical, but you know what, I can’t help thinking it was all highly convenient way of covering Gerry Brownlee’s  today so i ...
