This was a classic from parata
Acting Energy and Resources Minister Hekia Parata said she was in constant contact with Petrobras but had not spoken with the Brazilian company since the protest began.hardly constant then is it? Why would you think they care what you think anyway.
And this little titbit
The Government was working on legislation to govern future deep-sea drilling, and Petrobras would not be able to drill before this was in place.
Hmm - wonder what is in that legislation.
