A homeless tent city has sprung up outside Australia's central bank in the heart of Sydney, sparking a war of words over who should deal with it.More than 50 people are camping in the city's Martin Place, home to high-end office buildings and glitzy stores. Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore blamed the swelling numbers on "decades of gutless inaction" on homelessness from successive New South Wales state governments. NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian insisted it was up to the City of Sydney to find a solution, saying government officials had been to the site dozens of times but many people refused to leave.
