So a mere 22 desperate people took up Paula Bennett’s obscene ‘solution’ to pay the poor $5000 to leave Auckland.
So with 10 000 homeless in Auckland, and let’s say 22 people leave Auckland each month under this plan, Paula Bennett will have eradicated homelessness in Auckland within 37 years.
That’s not really much of a solution is it?
This Government has no interest in solving the Housing crisis or homelessness.
The homeless don’t vote for National.
Most renter’s don’t vote for National.
Most state tenants don’t vote for National.
Most Millennials don’t vote.
Property speculators DO vote and those are the ones National play to.
National are in selective denial about the housing crisis because they need the fake growth rates to make the economy look better than it really is and because the middle class illusion of wealth keeps them in power.
