In search of a tidal wave

Do you sleep peacefully at night, knowing that $60M of your taxes have been spent over the last four years to keep you and yours safe from tidal waves?


Yeah. Me too.


I used to brood and hyperventilate about getting out in time if a tidal wave hit, but not anymore.


As mentioned here the other day, plans for a national telephone disaster warning system at the bargain price of $20M has been - in the words of the deputy prime minister - "languishing around".


Yeah. You could put it that way.


No cash for phone alert system
