I AM SO OVER THE PIKE RIVER PEOPLE, SIX YEARS LATER


Any residual sympathy is now too small to register.

First the survivors wanted Peter Whithall hung drawn and quartered, then it was John Key's well intentioned but clearly over stated  promise to bring the  boys home, now it is Solid Energy that is the target as they set about sealing the mine.

Sorry people it is over and continuing to lock yourselves in the middle stages of grief  in an act of blind stupidity has a potential to destroy you all.
Make it their final resting place, treasure the memories and move on with your lives, even maybe try your hands at helping others still living amidst other unrelated  challenges life throws up.
Locking yourselves somewhere between blame and anger is totally counterproductive and barely half way to acceptance and hope where you will not find happiness but a realistic chance to move on with your lives.

I am sincerely sorry for the families of the twenty nine dead and in particular to the parents of one who are personally known to me, however six years later times up.

Its bordering on weird really. What do they think they'll find? You could weight a coffin and they'd be no wiser as any remains will hardly be identifiable outside science which you could fudge to give comfort.
