Petrol stations re-opening, refuelling - update

North Canterbury

Federated Farmers is reminding people not to resort to panic buying which would only lead to stations running out of fuel before fresh deliveries arrive.

Petrol retailers Caltex, BP, Shell and Mobil say there are plenty of trucks bringing regular petrol and diesel deliveries into the region and people should not worry they will run out.

Yesterday, many service-stations in Christchurch and surrounding areas were reopened after safety checks and had fresh supplies of fuel which would ordinarily last at least a day.

Instead, a rush for petrol and diesel caused some stations to run out in as little as four hours which would have left those at the back of the queue empty handed.

As a result some petrol stations around the city are left waiting on deliveries tonight and tomorrow.

"The problem is that when people see queues they start to panic too," Caltex spokeswoman Sharon Buckland told Federated Farmers.
Although Port of Lyttelton is out of commission, fuel supplies for all of the companies are being trucked into Christchurch from Timaru and there is plenty more also available through Nelson and Dunedin.

Gordon Campbell: On Drone Strikes And Judith Collins‘ Last Stand

The news that a New Zealand citizen was killed last November in a US drone attack in Yemen brings the drones controversy closer to home.

To the US, drones are a legitimate response to the threat posed by the al Qaeda organisation and its franchisees... To the US, the drones carry the added advantage of not putting US troops at risk on the ground, and minimises the need for putting them in large numbers in bases in the countries concerned, always a politically sensitive point.

The counter-argument, well articulated by security analyst Paul Buchanan on RNZ this morning, is that this particular drone attack can be said to amount to an extra-judicial execution of a New Zealand citizen by one of our military allies, in circumstances where the person concerned posed no threat to New Zealand’s domestic security.
