Seemingly perpetually under fire Reserve Bank Governor Adrian Orr, has advised that henceforth, “the bank will be increasing the number of conversations it has about climate change over the coming year.”
Think about that. A talking Bank! The tourist potential is huge.
But alas, the one year period the Bank will be talking will be wasted except for Visa-free Australian visitors. That’s because of the scandalous massive backlog in processing visas by the Immigration Department. Could that be because the Immigration staff have had and continue to enjoy a prolonged paid holiday, otherwise known as “working from home”?
The other concern is the bank might trendily wet, decide to talk in maori which sensibly, almost no-one else can, so far from conversations, instead the tourists drawn to experiencing chatting with a building, will instead be subject to a meaningless monologue.
If Adrian has any influence here, he must persuade the building to first delay any conversations commencing until the Immigration staff get back to work and equally important, switch its chatting to a language people actually speak.
