      John, there’s no doubt that the captain has failed to reach the standards we as NZers require of him. The point is, the current regime does not demand that standard. You cannot set low standards and then blame someone for not achieving a higher one. The blame lies with he who accepted the complacency in the first place.

  2. They could have been well underway getting the oil off the ship before the rough weather hit! An NZ company offered 2 inflatable recovery barges to pump oil off the ship that could arrive within hours on the back of a truck or by helicopter! The Govt didn’t even respond to them at all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMcDhBQ8gC0
