Tetraplegic disputes $30k motel bill

A tetraplegic man is fighting ACC and the Ministry of Social Development over a $30,000 debt, accumulated after he was put up in a motel when there were no suitable homes with wheelchair access.

Both organisations stopped funding the motel even though John Horsfield, 53, had nowhere else to go. He was thrown from a scooter in February 2015, while travelling at 70 kilometres an hour.

”I landed squarely on my back. If I had rolled I would’ve broken my arms and legs,” he said.

Ministry of Social Development regional commissioner Gagau Annandale-Stone said Horsfield didn’t qualify for emergency housing support, because he had significant cash assets, including a large ACC pay-out. “We advised John that we were no longer able to make the emergency grant non-recoverable, and he would need to pay it back,” he said.

Poll: Should we be building quarantine facilities instead of using hotels for Covid 19 quarantine

Experts are warning that there will be more pandemics in the future.
Rather than put people in hotels, some experts are arguing we should put people in purpose built facilities.

Professor Nick Wilson, of Otago University’s public heath department, said returnee breakouts and virus spread from hotels which were not built for a pandemic means there is still the risk of another Auckland-sized outbreak.

Wilson told Stuff instead of hotels spread across the country, New Zealand needed a purpose-built facility in a more remote area with flight connections, like the Ōhakea Air Base in Manawatū. Planes carrying returnees could fly direct, and passengers should be tested several days before departure.

A Māori Party proposal to change the name of Wellington to Te Whanganui-a-Tara has the support of city leaders.

Kaumātua and Te Rūnanganui o Te Āti Awa ki te Upoko o te Ika a Maui chairman Kura Moeahu said he strongly supported the move to return place names to the original ingoa Māori. It would helps everyone understand the local history, he said. "There is a narration that goes with each of these names.

Wellington City Councillor Jill Day (Ngāti Tūwharetoa), who holds the Māori Partnerships portfolio, welcomed the announcement.

Commuters spoken to in Wellington by Stuff also supported the idea. Craig Lambert thought Te Ūpoko o te Ika a Māui was a more inclusive alternative. ”It represents all people.”

“Many of our cities and towns were named after people who never came to Aotearoa, with no consideration of the names that were already in use,” Day said.

Fellow Councillor Tamatha Paul (Ngāti Awa and Waikato Tainui) said there were about 39 places called Wellington in the world.

A poll on Neighbourly with over 520 respondents was 81 per cent against a name change.

If it were not for an injury in 2018, Wellington City Cr Sean Rush would still be competing in gymnastics, aged 51.

It was a sport he got into as a 9-year-old in Hawke’s Bay. By his teen years he was representing New Zealand. At the age of 15 he got a near-perfect 9.9 score on the high beam at an Australian competition.

He gave it away but started again, aged about 40 in Calgary, Canada. When he returned to New Zealand he went to Capital Gym Sports in Newtown with hopes of competing again as a 50-year-old. But that dream ended when he “buggered” his knee doing a summersault.

He is just one of a number of councillors with a hidden talent
