ChCh: Finally coming to their senses at last

Earthquake-damaged Christ Church Cathedral could be demolished and rebuilt further west

At last, some are slowly coming to their senses. Pity bloated Gerry "we'll give you dictatorial bureaucrats than you've ever seen" and Bob "I've more orange hi-vis vests than you could ever guess for endless photo-ops to make me look good" are still shouting Smile and Wave's spin. That is that the cavalry will arrive soon and all will be fixed with a RWC and a vote for me for more of the same.

Yeah, bloody right.

As for those whining out east about the losses, it is time cut your losses, seize the initiative and depart the area for greener pastures elsewhere. The taxpayer is already seriously stretched without having to cough for your lack of insurance. A decision you happily enjoyed prior to these quakes.

Good on those at the cathedral for seeing the light. T
hink back to your forebears, it is well overdue time to abandon the clipboard polishers, just get out there and do it. There is no cavalry, you are on your own and it will cost you dearly. The sooner you realise that, the sooner you will move on.

Now just come your senses, flash up the D9 bulldozers, level the place and abandon my birthplace, the Village of the Damned.

gibliCommon sense has been in short supply.

The suburbs built on a swamp -ie those that have had excessive liquifaction - cannot be rebuilt. The Govt could buy the land (insurance co's pay out for damaged buildings) and huge park developed as a memorial/tourist attraction/greenspace/etc. Nothing OTT - open spaces, trees, cycle paths, jogging tracks, etc.

How did the word verication end up at the beginning of my comment?????
