What consistently gets missed in the on going arguments about the Hoising Crisis is that National have no interest whatsoever in solving the problem.
The grossly over inflated housing prices that are now nearing $1million are caused and created by National’s free market love affair with cheap immigration scams and ruthless speculators. The grossly inflated property prices ensured NZers voted for Key in 2014 despite mass surveillance lies and dirty politics and it keeps GDP prices looking plump.
National will not allow house prices to fall. Ever, and when you look at homelessness, National’s draconian welfare reforms and privatisation of state houses has led directly to the increase in our homelessness levels.
NZers voted for this in 2014, and it’s those middle class property National voting speculators who now suddenly want to be part of the solution?
Fuck them and their privilege.
Capital gains taxes, 30 000 new state houses, 100 000 new affordable homes and a total ban on non-citizens buying houses. These are the solutions, and we will only see them post 2020 when Gen X and Gen Y become a larger voting block than the boomers.
