Liberian-flagged vessel? Greek dept??? if that were the case it would have been paid off hundreds of years ago.. note greece is the only country that did not receive compensation from the 2nd world war unlike many..
commercial interest? no offence, id like to think that maybe things are far more simple than some people would have them be.. we are only human and we are naturally very sensitive to stupidity no matter what potition we are in or what responsibilities we may carry.. thousands of ships sail all over the world every day..statistics should speak for themselves!
..last our world is falling apart there are not many parts of this earth left natural, accident or politics NZ oil spill is alaming and just sad!

Wow some of you just have no idea. Maritime New Zealand, the salvage company and the Government are doing everything they can. Do you think they whated this to happen? Sometimes it is better left to the experts to do their job. It amazes me just how ignorant some of you are.

The ignorance and mob mentality on here is amazing. Its not about blame and politics. Its about fixing the mess first and foremost. If you really care then work a few extra hours and donate to the animal rescue organizations who will be working overtime for many weeks. Some people should not be left in charge of a computer.

Not happy about corexit being used. That stuff is far more toxic than any oil! yet they're going to be spraying more of it, and an even more powerful mix of it. There has been a lot of research in to the effects on not only marine life but humans as well, and the fact that it's the first thing they have jumped to really makes me mad. Who sold it to NZ, and how much are we paying for it? If it is not leaking profusely where are the booms around the ship.

This is like watching a train smash in slow motion.3 days. No action. Oil is leaking. Pumping hasnt started, in fact the barge neede still sits in Auckland. Weather forecast is bad. Ship is fragile. This has potential to explode into NZs worst environmental disaster destroying a pristine coastline environment. Not good enough!!Time for Joyce to show leadership and enforece Maritime act and take over control. Salvagers will only work in their commercial interest. NZ 100% Pure. Yeah Right. Time to Act!!!

When we are given the chance to be pro-active, we should act on it immediately, typical of the Government to stand back and watch, and only react after public and media pressure builds, and then it will be too late,....Act now and quick before the situation worsens..........
