In New Zealand, Christ Church Cathedral rescue bid rejected

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The cathedral would be largely demolished, leaving walls about two to three metres high, Anglican leaders said in March.

A spokeswoman for the Anglican diocese said the campaigners' proposal would not be implemented.

Christchurch has a Wizard apparently:

“I have examined the Bishop’s foundations and have discovered that they are built on sand. She is in a very dangerous state, being seriously cracked, and I can see no evidence that she can be made safe.”

Oh dear.

Some days I sit and think. Other days I just sit!!
