Seeking Harbour Bridge stories

Water supply.

David from Glen Eden

So we have a serious drought on our hands. Somewhere I read that a feed from the river was planned in 2013. The Auckland growth and the weather patterns pointed to the need. Now I hear that our water issue is preceded by other issues in a very long queue. The queue is so long we might never see it … View moreSo we have a serious drought on our hands. Somewhere I read that a feed from the river was planned in 2013. The Auckland growth and the weather patterns pointed to the need. Now I hear that our water issue is preceded by other issues in a very long queue. The queue is so long we might never see it happen and such a queue in itself seems to me a sign of lunacy and poor planning. All these issues, laws, approvals, lists and plans are man made. Who is it that determines that water is not really important and can simply join the queue? Need I ask if we're run by lunatics? We actually do give water away so I guess it's value is nil!!

covid-19 isolation work

The direction, testing and housing of people from all over the world with different levels of covid exposure at different times must be a nightmare. The hundreds of people involved at the coal face involves hotel staff, testers, transport staff as well as the normal border control paperwork. Few if any of the staff involved will have been selected by interview, intelligence, or suitability for isolation procedures. No prior training could be provided, the job has never been done before. We do know some people don't obey rules, even ministers! The whole system relies on a set of instructions passed down to those on the front line. Success is reliant on mostly lay persons, their dedication, their willingness and ability to carry out instructions. Such a dynamic situation with large scale daily movements of people would not be easy to manage in real time. There are many avenues for criticism, always with hindsight and by people who have never done the job, people who don't really know what they are talking about. The critics motive is usually political. How much easier it is to pull something to bits than to be constructive.
I am not making excuses on behalf of anyone, who was it that failed? The team that planned and executed levels 4 down to level 1 earned world wide acclaim. Their/our performance was close to impeccable by any honest judgement supported by statistics.
Something went wrong after that but it wasn't directly a failure of government ministers. Perhaps the hard earned result we achieved can't be maintained but let's not give up quite so soon. Instead of criticise try and realise the nature of this very difficult situation. We are still in a relatively good place. Where else would you like to be? It is not useful to play political football with a pandemic and no matter who does what criticism with hindsight and born of ignorance will always be far too easy.

Poll: How do you fold your towels?

Hey neighbours, is there a right way to fold towels? It seems it's a topic lots of people have strong opinions about.

Hey neighbours, is there a right way to fold towels? It seems it's a topic lots of people have strong opinions about.

The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. But what do you do? And who knew folding towels could be so controversial?
