Rena on the Rocks

350 tons of bunker oil coming to a beach near you, may as well throw in another 1350 tons for good measure.
The company that owns this rust bucket manned by Philipino wops, is called the Mediterranean Shipping Company.
They are refered to by Aussie dock workers as “More Shit Coming”.
It was their ship that did a similar ‘reef shortcut’ on the English coast not too long ago.
NZ Politicians .. you need to outlaw this company from NZ waters.
.. you need to push for all ships to have GSP transponders (working) in order to run real time position monitoring to avoid this kind of stupid mistake.
The crew being on the piss at the time of grounding adds insult to injury.
