Meanwhile, according to Clark, revelations that a Tologa Bay house administered by Maori Affairs Minister Parekura Horomia has been condemned as unfit for human habitation have strengthened rather than weakened Housing Minister Mark Gosche’s call for a crackdown on landlords with sub-standard rental properties.

David Miller: Don’t Blame It On The Short Skirts
