Green Guilt…….

There should be, but of course there isn’t…….. all NZ sits back in complicit silence.

This morning it was announced that the Springcreek mine near Greymouth has been closed by  Labour Department Safety officers until further checks can be made and I suppose it’s understandable that they should be doubly careful after the Pike River mine collapse and loss of life.

New Zealand was rightly shocked by that and should (IM(not so)HO) be even more shocked by the glacial progress of the subsequent Commission of Inquiry into its cause.

Nobody states the obvious.     If the Greens had accepted the idea of opencast mining there wouldn’t have been a tragedy at Pike River and Springcreek might still be operating.
