Flooding - Native Trees - Fending Is Ok - Whinger Allegations

Queenstown - A hill above 40 Queenstown homes is unstable and may descend over part of the scenic town. Residents have been allowed back into their homes under police escort to collect valuables.

Cluther - The Cluther River has burst its banks and much of the south’s lowlands have been under water. Water levels are now receding.

Deep South - Invercargill and Bluff: Residents have been asked to boil all water before drinking and cooking. Work is beginning on repairing roads and removing sandbags.

Clyde Dam - Contact Energy is under fire from residents who allege it is responsible for a silt build-up in the river down-stream from the Clyde Dam. The residents claim the silt is responsible for the water levels being 10 metres higher than normal. The Clyde Dam however is clearing the silt naturally, pushing five times the normal amount of water through its floodgates.

Fender OK - National Tertiary Minister Max Bradford has been found to be justified in pushing/fending a Canterbury University student to the ground. Mr Bradford will not comment further on the incident.

West Coast Campaign - Meanwhile, on the election trail, National’s Jenny Shipley says Labour’s Damien O’Conner is a nice guy but is in the wrong party. She says the Westcoast has been betrayed and deserted by Labour. And so says ACT and New Zealand First. The Green Party’s co-leader, Rod Donald, says National is out of touch with the wishes of the majority, who he believes does not want any more logging of West Coast native forests.

A Whinger? - Labour’s economic spokesperson, Michael Cullen, is accusing National’s Bill English of conducting a whining, whinging campaign. Both figures men say their respective policies are organised and what the country needs.
