Commenting on the story: Moran defies city council gag rule, calls on churches to open doors to homeless

Good idea from Councillor Moran re homeless refuge in churches on cold nights.

Maybe open up Town hall precincts too; plenty of soft carpet floors there and they could leave the air-con on, which churches don’t have. – Ian Clarkson

Allowing the vulnerable to sleep in a protected and warm place with a roof over their heads is not a lot to ask.

Anne Moran is only doing what is humane.

Don’t pretend this is about politics, this is the “ lucky country”.

Lucky more people are not falling ill or dying from homelessness.

Good luck Anne, I will be looking forward to hearing how this is resolved. Jacqueline Bowden

Commenting on the story: Tensions, oil prices rise after new attacks on Gulf tankers

It’s surprising to me that the attackers can’t be identified.

With such a valuable cargo, I would have thought that oil tankers would have surveillance technology. – Diana Jaquillard
