Pike River Mine won't be solved within a Keither Sutherland hyper reality TV drama time frame
Hmmm, the public seem shocked that a real world crises isn't solved within a Keither Sutherland hyper reality TV drama kind of way
The-Bloke-down-pub brigade seem to think that rescuers at the Pike Mine should have just popped on a couple of Bio-Hav suits and scooted down for a rescue which is an understandable frustration when the mine owner is blaming robots who need fresh air to work in for delays.
Sadly real life crises don't move with the speed of narrative squeezed between adverts and the real world pain can't be eased by speeding up an unsafe rescue. The Police should be applauded for their caution and the integrity of their role in assessing the appropriate response.
Respects to the West Coast community, it has been a bloody hard year for the mainland.
