New Zealand's city of Christchurch has formally marked the completion of its new cardboard cathedral with a dedication service.

I'll soon be going to Poland, with a visit to the salt cathedral pre-booked. This one looks interesting but no way can I afford a visit. Out of interest, I recently watched a television programme which showed a terraced street in London with a difference. What looked like an elegant house, was in fact just a front that hid the London Underground. 

 

I have visited many cathedrals both at home and abroad and never lose interest.

Leinster Gardens, Bayswater. Walked past it many a time.

With many a passerby unaware that it's a 5ft-thick facade!

Christchurch was one of my favourite cities in NZ when we went there for our Honeymoon. North and South island are both nice and if they weren't so damn far away I would seriously consider moving out there permanently.



The last government were convinced that we were there to do their bidding. They wasted vast quantities of our money in order to spy on us, intimidate us and needlessly over regulate us, whilst gold plating their own pensions and expenses. Their behind the scenes encouragement of, and turning a blind eye to, the kettling and harrassment tactics of the Police are a shameful episode in our history which we need to remember and address urgently. - Haloman
