Today’s announcement by John Key of a billion loan for infrastructure does nothing to help those missing out in the current housing crisis, the first home buyer, says the Leader of the Opposition Andrew Little.

“John Key’s announcement proves this Government has run out of ideas to solve the biggest social issue facing New Zealand today, decent housing.

“This is a rushed, piecemeal policy that hasn’t been thought through.

“Auckland has a $19 billion bill for infrastructure hanging over it, and that’s just for the next ten years. So another line of credit is not the answer.

“Councils can already borrow this money for themselves so it’s really just more smoke and mirrors by a Government that has no real answers.

“The biggest hole in this policy is that it does absolutely nothing for the first home buyer. Middle New Zealand has again been forgotten.

“Instead of on-lending a billion dollars to Councils, the Government should reform the way infrastructure is funded by adopting Labour’s plan for bond-financing paid back by targeted rates. Sadly this announcement is just another stop gap measure from National.

“What this Government must do is come up with a comprehensive housing policy that tackles the crisis across the board. Instead of half-measures and piecemeal policies the priority should be to build affordable houses for people to live in”, says Andrew Little.

  1. I concur 100%, the Neo liberal agenda is dead as it was a Global experiment for the Corporations AS THEY BUY THEIR WAY IN TO OUR WORLD.

    In the case of global Transport we all can see it is the neo liberals are not especially interested in rail BUT WILL SNEAK INTO THE ROAD FREIGHT/PASSENGER GAME.

    They do not connect the dots as we do, – to understand that only rail is good for so many reasons of environmental, health, and many other issues of, – safety, – as well as offering competitive choices in land freight and passenger services that MAKE EXPECIALLY OUR PROVINCIAL BUSSINESS’S ALL BENEFIT FROM ENRICHED ECONONIC COMPETITIVE TRANSPORT OPTIONS.

    We all need this to allow our business’s to survive in our isolated regions else we will all wither and die.

    While we see the Neo cons and their Neo liberal cousins, – both are spending all our taxpayer money against us all currently to build up the “Golden Triangle” of Auckland, Hamilton, Rotorua, & Tauranga up to be the only hub in the whole upper regions of the North Island now while this is killing off the rest of the provinces in their monster planned business hub.

    Sadly a hollow insidious genocide plan they are devising against the populations of our provinces.

    The light in the tunnel is coming as – Brexit, Australian Election, US election, and falling support for National in NZ are simply a reaction to over used Neo Con and Neo liberal polices that leave others, (Provinces/States) outside in the economic light to wither as we all are..

    WE MUST SWEEP THIS EVIL GOVERNMENT FROM POWER NEXT YEAR AND WE EXPECT A SURPRISE SNAP ELECTION NOW HERE IN NZ AS A RESULT OF THEIR FALLING NATIONAL SUPPORT. Prepare for the fight folks!

  2. John key always says one thing but does another. No one should believe the lies from the treasonous John the Con anymore. Key’s true intentions were revealed earlier on 20th of June of this year:

    “Key said he had been approached by Chinese state-owned infrastructure companies and others willing to build both residential developments and the water and roading infrastructure needed to support those developments. But to do this, the Government would need to change the laws to allow the creation of these UDAs, which would then pass on development contributions directly to developers, instead of the Auckland Council.”

    Councils were never part of key’s plans in the first place, so quite the opposite from the bull Key was spouting yesterday, and we all know why he changed the wording for his public speech, don’t we? And it appears that behind this, is China calling on key to create work for its people, even if that means changing our laws in favour of foreign entities that by pass our own…what’s new? Key has been doing that anti NZ bullshit for 8 years now.

    Martyn is right, key doesn’t want to do anything that will burst the bubble in tax haven NZ that he has created, it’s just more lies shoved down the throats of Kiwis, while behind the scenes he is orchestrating more undemocratic anti kiwi skulduggery that is at the expense of this country and our people.
