Let me get this straight - cost of a power pole is 70k but the compensation for a loss of life (recent bus accident) is 30k a person....

 

was it teak wood?

 

 

yes, but realize that 30k was because they(on bus) were deemed as exceptional people

No, you haven't got it straight by any means, the compensation for a loss of life is not B30k per person, that was the level of insurance offered in one particular case by one specific insurance company based on one particular insurance policy.

Considering the pole only seems to be held together by duct tape he may have done the residents a favour

Not really, a bit more duct tape & it'll be as good as it was!!
