NZ police have stopped the program to recover the 29 dead miners at the Pike River mine

GREYMOUTH, NEW ZEALAND - DECEMBER 02:  Prime M...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeThe NZ police have decided that the program to reclaim bodies of miners from the Pike River mine near Greymouth on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island will cease.

PM John key claims that cost has nothing to do with the decision to halt proceedings at Pike River to make the mine safe for  a recovery team. A GAG jet engine on loan from Queensland in Australia has been used for a number of weeks to try and get some stability in the mine which is full of toxic gases, which caused the four explosions in the mine and the death of all 29 miners and contractors working in the mine a couple of months ago.

However, John Key has promised the families of the dead men they would get their men home!

John Key will suffer the political fallout of this decision - it is his ultimate decision not the police who have been   financing the operation at Pike River.  His Government will lose the West Coast seat at the next elections. The fallout may well have a snowballing effect that will destroy this government.

It will now be the decision of the receivers of the failed company, Pike River Coal, to consider the future. They only have $10 million dollars left in the kitty now.

The families of the dead men are shattered at the decision to stop any future recovery. The mine will be sealed. Any future decision will be subject to the Royal Commission of Enquiry in coming months.

The locals need to hire an expert of their own. It appears profit has been placed well ahead of safety from the beginning and a coverup is now underway.

Sending a recovery party into the mine at this point is likely to uncover a lot more than the bodies.

Hi Peter/Kiwi,
The situation is like when our rescue authorities decided to stop further attempts to find survivors of the recent volcanic eruption in Yogjakarta.

Travel medical insurance is a great idea anytime you go another country. It's just like regular health insurance, but it's meant to cover you within the specific country that you will be spending a few of your time and effort. It could be either temporary or permanent, determined by your travel habits. Usually, to have insurance, a person has to cover reasonably limited and maintain job security to a insurance provider, sometimes with an agent or middleman. Subsequently, the insurance coverage company agrees to fund any health care bills the buyer needs. A lot of companies have various insurance coverage and schemes which have been affordable, reliable and to buy. Medical care insurance gives people the means to express the responsibility from the medical costs by easy methods of paying premiums.

Travel medical care insurance means for international travelers that have to look abroad very often. There are a number of travel health care insurance companies giving support to a large number of traveling people on travel medical programs. These programs are meant to provide medical protection and assistance services in cases where people develop medical problems away from country.

However, a number of the salient popular features of the travel health insurance schemes are that all every such scheme features a hospital indemnity good thing about at least $100 per night for those traveling away from US and Canada. In addition they pay about $15,000 in eligible medical expenses for pre-existing conditions. But this feature is intended for the united states citizens traveling away from United States and Canada.

They have engaged a QC to handle the matter for them.

The Govt has backtracked on their promise that they would get their men out.

The collapsed company's receivers will give eight weeks to try and get some stability in the mine - toxic gases are still too high.

Harry, some people including family members suspect the government doesn't really want the public to know what really happened.
