Road chaos continues
The combination of a large number of tourists and an even larger group of outer islanders on the island for Te Maeva Nui is contributing to traffic chaos on our roads, with many motorists apparently blissfully unaware of the road rules. Time for the police to mount continuous checkpoints, just like they did at Christmas. Or doesn’t the budget allow for that?
High-flying PM at it again already
The jet-setting PM departed last Sunday on another overseas junket...no time wasting as Caretaker government.
WHY ARE WE WAITING?
It is high time the Airport Authority sorted out the issues with their automated carpark – but this looks to be unlikely to happen anytime in the near future.
Former MP’s emergency looks a tad suspicious...
Did you hear about the medical emergency in Penrhyn? The government sent the Air Raro jet and on the way collected the CIP MP elect for Pukapuka and the independent MP elect for Penrhyn, but I believe medical referral was for the previous MP Willie John. We know poor Willie fell over in the elections but didn’t realise it was an emergency. Could be there was another emergency and not a medical kind?
No airpoints for PM on flight to northern islands
Before the general election, caretaker PM, Henry Puna went on a taxpayer-funded trip to his constituency of Manihiki. That worked out very well for him, although there were no first class seats or airpoints on that trip.
