it's busted, move on
"The severely quake-damaged and "very dangerous" Christ Church Cathedral will not be rebuilt it has been confirmed.
Bishop Victoria Matthews, speaking in the Botanical Gardens this afternoon, said the cathedral would be "deconstructed with the utmost care and respect while at the same time protecting the treasures within its walls..."
Any fool know this building has had it. So salvage what you can and use the salvage in building a new one- with the insurance money and any donations.
Nothing is forever, so get over it.
As for this imbecile:
"...However, a city councillor has already threatened to chain himself to the cathedral to prevent any demolition.
Cr Aaron Keown said the cathedral would be demolished ''over my dead body''.
''I would be in there chaining myself to the building to stop that and I know lots of other volunteers would come in to do that..."
Chain away. We can never have too much Darwinian selection.
Do the council and the bureaucrats not have enough blood on their clipboards already? All those who were killed by unstable building that could not be demolished due to red tape (Bloody resource consents for 'heritage' buildings- AKA crumbling shit-holes)
i know how much damage would be done to a D-8 should it happen to run over this twit.
