Given Pell's standing within the Catholic Church, and what appears to be a 'he said - he said' element to the testimony, there is a perception that this conviction is a little unsafe, and that the real story is yet to play out in the Appeals Court. With the considerable financial resources available to Cardinal Pell through the church, the appeal will be of great interest. Will you cover the appeal as well, and do you believe Pell has grounds to appeal?

Hello Sia, I hope you are recovering well.

I am in the military, and I wonder how people in the Middle East really feel about military people from other countries coming to the middle east to try and bring their verson of stability to the region. Is it a worthwhile exercise, or are we simply delaying an inevitable conclusion?

Yeah, I understand how the revolution needs to be internal, not external, but it saddens me to see people being repressed simply for insisting on their basic human rights. I wish you all the best in your struggle.
