Housing Crisis: a Farce Of Pot Calling Kettle Black
Housing Crisis: a Farce Of Pot Calling Kettle
National and Labour’s reaction to the housing crisis is to blame each other.
“Both are the guilty parties,” says New Zealand First Leader and Northland MP Rt Hon Winston Peters.
“The Labour Government up to 2008 had a housing crisis on its hands, and did not deal with it.
“Then National campaigned in the 2008 election on the ‘housing crisis’ with a plan to fix it.
“Once in government the crisis mysteriously evaporated for National, but not for New Zealanders who are still living it.
“Today on The Nation both Labour and National argued the point over what they would do and what they claim to be doing.
“Neither is convincing and the evidence defeats them.
“Kiwis are shut out of housing ownership, social agencies are trying to rescue Kiwis who are living in cars and garages, and rents are skyrocketing and eating more and more of family incomes.
“There’s no solution on the horizon
with either Labour or National.”
