So no change then

Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee has hit upon a genius plan to stop all further privacy leaks from the Earthquake Commission: shut down all incoming and outgoing EQC email systems.

This means that emails to the organisation will fall into a black hole, and people waiting to hear from the EQC about progress on their claims will know not to bother checking their email accounts.

So it’s business as usual at the EQC.
