TPPA, mini-prison no one wants and now allowing foreign speculators to buy the apartments Gen Xers and Millennials are told they need to buy (Dear Phil, smash the golf courses)
So what the Government is really saying is, ‘Dear Gen Xers and Millennials, you will still have to compete with overseas boomer investors who want to make a quick buck out of apartment developments so go fuck yourself”.Read More →
