    bad news !!!! skin falling off survivors , 3 confirmed dead , possibly 19 ? no one will confirm ? cops telling bullshit stories to media , info from ambo also ham . Not nice outcome ??? tour operators told by gns not to land clients on island due to activity six days ago survivors look like zombies according to eye witness
    Local ham club set up gateway for aprs and also digipeater . Civil defence using it for tracking . Area cordoned off to bring "others"in after dark by chopper ? (Assume for bodies)from preps being made ???? more chopper activity , local hospital ED overwhelmed and some choppered to tauranga and auckland hospitals

    Havent got any more to add to thread except the white island tours company were advised on 2nd dec not to land people on the island by gns govt dept until it had settled down again and the threat level was dropped , White island tours chose to ignore the gns advice . A few years back this business was sold by the operators to a Maori outfit this is the result

    Here we go again ! cops trying to do a job they know nothing about and leading with ignorance bah dickheads !!!! we are going to have another Pike river load of shit !!!! They have declared a criminal investigation so they have control of the island . Tough shit for the families who want their loved ones bodys back for xmas from the disaster But leaving bodies out there to be eaten by acid is repugnant to me .Theres certainly no respect for anyone under these circumstances how can anyone have respect for the cops I ask you ???? as most are australian citizens perhaps to australian authoritys should be in charge not the stupid pommy exports in charge of the nz police Stuart nash IS a complete fool and a dickhead , shit we cant have risk now can we ? Horse shit!!!! Just get the fvck on with it and fvck the paperwork later

    The main stream media coverage has been laughable....
    Was all covered online yesterday.
    If u want to go on an expedition get a Land Rover, if u want to come home from an expedition get a Landcruiser!

    Now the cops are saying it might blow up again and we cant have our staff in danger ????? wtf are they cops for they are paid for the risks ??? whats the difference between a volcano and a madman with a ak47 still a risk ???? After all they are already dead so who cares ??? they have the airport cordoned off and the boat ramp as well so no one can launch their boat and the fishing boats cant unload their catch --- no fresh fish -- the sheeple are expected to live with this crap bah phooey

    We all expect to come home safe from work and we are no different to police, ambo or whatever. You are right, the police know nothing of the dangers and have to call in experts to formulate a plan.I think in the first place nobody should have been allowed on the island in the first place, but it just comes down to someone making a quick buck

    Theres some who are alive because of the kiwi attitude of going toward the danger to evaluate the situation before taking action and they took the risk to save lives they are the heros .But heres the clincher !!!!! in august this year the civil defence made a bold move to provide an eruption shelter for anyone on the island (it is a twenty foot container) with breathing apparatus , first aid and burns treatment but its locked hahaha safe as houses eh cant steal from it too
    all there in the container flown to the site by the air-forces new helicopter and set down on concrete pad poured for the job so it wouldnt tip over in a earthquake , great you are lead to believe BUT its on the wrong side of the island where nobody goes except the gannet counters once a year then its a goat track to get there and you cant land a boat there at all because of the cliffs either side of it and the pacific swell that comes in there.
    So lets evaluate the situation ------ eruption happens ---- people get hit with rocks and acidic ash there is no air to breath as it all sulphuric and burns your throat with very little oxygen in it ------- it ok though cos we got a a eruption shelter just over there with all we will need until we get rescued HOORAY but it over the rim of the volcano 2kms away oops our skin is being burnt off the clothes we were wearing are starting to dissolve from the sulphuric acid and its rubbing the rest of your skin off ------ the ash is like snow only thicker it sticks to skin that it touches and sweat turns it to acid and eats you alive luckily snow only makes you wet acid eats you slowly ------ there were a couple of aussies who were told to jump into the sea that saved their lives as they had no acid burns after --- another chopper pilot advice -- says they looked like zombies until they dived in to the sea. Hooray for the aussie air force flying home survivors to get treatment in sydney . The nz burns unit is top class but it is not capable of handling the numbers due to right-wing cost cutting measures of the last national party more to come ????

    Please stop this very unhelpful, infantile commentary on what is a very sad and painful matter, Hinekadon.

    Quite honestly, it disgusts me.

    Tristen ? Well if you were here and see the politics you would have a right to be disgusted, the stupidity of the infantile decisions may by those in charge of the police would make you change your mind Just the same as the world media is disgusted , My comments have been a sour taste to those who want to profit politically from this disaster . Sad yes very having seem first hand the anguish displayed by the relatives of those lives were lost . Unhelpful ! not from the comments I have received and those at pike river disaster still waiting for their love ones to have a proper burial ( ask Bernie monk)with out pressure they would have done Nothing !!!! As the Australian authorities realised when it was pointed out to them the had the courage to do something and look after the interests of their citizens that made a big difference to the situation . My opinion is not just restricted to austech but is welcomed in other fields Cheers Don
