Title: Pike River Mine
Post by: Yak on June 10, 2014, 03:09:06 pm
I have just finished reading Rebecca Macfie's book, Click (http://www.nbr.co.nz/article/tragedy-pike-river-mine-how-and-why-29-men-died-dc-148754) and I don't understand why Peter Whittall isn't doing ten to twenty years jail instead of being allowed to walk free as a bird.
I live in the vicinity, and listening to the talk round town, Whittall is seen as the prime cause of what went wrong at the mine - This book really sheets it home.

Well worthy of a read if you see it.
