Chauvel should quit the earthquake predictions business

Just last week Charles Chauvel was telling everyone who would listen that the risk of an earthquake before Christmas was low:

“These buildings must have been considered safe last week, and the week before. The acting deputy secretary of courts says there is ‘no imminent danger’. Instead of this knee-jerk reaction, a proper risk assessment should apply.

“The courtrooms in these courthouses will be scheduled for skeleton sittings over those three or four weeks. The likelihood of a major quake in most of the affected locations between now and Christmas is low.

After last nights earthquake in the Wellington region it looks like Charles Chauvel’s earthquake predicting skills have as much credibility as his skills at winning Ohariu off Peter Dunne.
