I’m sorry, National had the audacity to say WHAT about State Housing?

I simply can not take this bullshit seriously…

National says HNZ failed the Loun family after ignoring repeated requests to fix safety issues
The Opposition is slamming Housing New Zealand, saying it failed to address health and safety concerns at a family home in Mount Roskill for too long.

…who the hell do National think they are?

Under National, Housing NZ threw over 2000 beneficiaries out onto the streets, banned them from State Housing  for 12 months, in some cases had children removed, were allegedly getting secret information from Health Boards targeting addicts using their services and indebted beneficiaries with hundreds of thousands in contamination costs while needlessly spending $120million for unnecessary clean ups.

All at a time while we were in the middle of a housing and homelessness crisis!

Housing NZ, Bill English & Paula Bennett were all told in 2016 that HNZ were applying their own policy incorrectly, and yet HNZ still threw 300 onto the street after being told this directly. National did this to demonise state tenants at a time they were trying to privatise state housing and used the fake meth hysteria to rob beneficiaries of any media support…

…but NOW National feel they can step back into the State Housing debate and complain about Housing NZ not helping State Tenants?

Fuck National and anything their MP spawn have to say, their faux concern and crocodile tears are an obscenity when it comes to State Tenants.

  1. Every time any of them opens their mouths to criticise the current Govt I feel the same way as you do. MSM really need to up their coverage and refer back to how National were while in govt as an example of hypocrisy but they don’t, for some strange and weird reason. Haha!!

    • Not this a..hole, I’d have them all hung drawn and quartered for treason, especially Key, Collins, Pullya Benefit and Nick Smith!

  2. Looking at the current and past National choices of leader then it doesn’t take much to realise they so lack credibility.

    Not too long ago their current leader was gallivanting around New Zealand at the expense of the New Zealand taxpayers. He was doing all this whilst not acknowledging the fact the government he was part of at the time was throwing NZers out of homes and perhaps onselling those properties to wealthy overseas Instant Kiwis who so happened to donate to the NZ National Party.

    And during a past National government that Bridges’ was an MP in they were denying there was a housing crisis. Amazingly now there is a Coalition government National are carrying on about a housing crisis that they helped to create and blaming the current government for the housing crisis.

    But due to arrogance, greed, ego and “I have the monopoly on intelligence because I am a National MP’ attitudes there is not a peep of acknowledgement by National and their current batch of MPs that they made mistakes. It’s like the mistakes are the fault of everyone else but National. Talk about hypocrisy in its grandest of forms.

    John Key once said NZers should not be tenants in their own country. However what Key said and what Key and co did may have meant they were ALL living on toilet-free Planet Key and NOT New Zealand.

    It is highly likely a number of National MPs made alot of money personally out of the Meth Myth. They put Double Dipping to a whole new lowly level.

    We should take whatever National tell us between now and next year with a pinch of salt. Mainly because they just don’t get it that they are to blame and must take responsibility and accountability for what they did from 2008 through to late October 2017. But we all know they will not. They will naturally blame everyone else but themselves because they deem themselves as being superior beings and HNZ tenants as being lowlifes.

      Your first sentence answers your second.

      They actually do believe that they can do no wrong and so when anything does go wrong on their watch it was always someone else’s fault.

      Watch them – they always do it and they’ll do it while going on about personal responsibility at the same time.

      John Key once said NZers should not be tenants in their own country. However what Key said and what Key and co did may have meant they were ALL living on toilet-free Planet Key and NOT New Zealand.

      We can only be free if we don’t sell off to the highest offshore bidder. National and Labour are all about selling us off to the highest offshore bidder. Thus we will become tenants in our own land. It is inevitable unless we get round to banning offshore ownership.

      Most of the rest of us know this at an instinctive level and have always been against offshore ownership but the government, of all stripes and colours, keep selling us out anyway.

      We should take whatever National tell us between now and next year with a pinch of salt.

      We should simply assume that whatever they tell us is a lie as they have to lie because reality never conforms to their beliefs.

  3. To be clear the people they kicked out of state houses were, by and large, using meth with children in the house.
    I couldn’t care less about these scum.

    Furthermore, to suggest that this current mob care any more about people than the previous lot is simply naive.
    The only person ever to walk into parliament with honest intentions is Guy Fawkes.

    • Ummmm – to be ‘clearer’ most of those state houses didn’t have a base test did they Jay? So how exactly are you able to determine who smoked the meth and when?

      • Yes, because there would have been ZERO other evidence of drug use and child neglect, RIGHT?

        The simple fact of the matter is that a significant minority of the population should never be in charge of raising children.

        So your “no baseline” argument holds little water and is simply an attempt to deflect from this truth.

        • Last time beneficiaries got drug tested (for marijuana) less than 1% failed. These are such low probability arm waving a hundred million at a time. Wast of money. And the guy wasting all this tax payer money, Mike Sabin is a disgrace.

        • Ummm, Jay, do you understand what happened with the meth testing hysteria? Because your above comment seems to have no idea what happened. Again, could you please explain how not having a baseline test meant the current tenant was responsible for the meth smoking? Are you arguing people should just be hanged because you don’t like those people?

        • “Yes, because there would have been ZERO other evidence of drug use and child neglect, RIGHT”

          Yes, right. There was no evidence of other drug use and child “neglect” was based on…. the flawed drug testing results. Fake evidence. Kids were removed for “neglect” which was based on “meth” testing that was flawed. It was bullshit, in case you don’t get what “flawed” means.

          Your circular logic falls apart because your premise is based on a scam. There was no reliable testing and if there was residue there was no evidence where it came from.

          Calling them “scum” betrays your own bigotry Jays. Facts don’t seem to trouble you as much as poor people. Don’t be a bigot, mate, it’s not cool.

    • No one knows exactly who was smoking meth or even if meth was smoked….that’s the point….cant you follow that. It is very clear that the current government care more about poor people …they are building lots of new state housing and pouring many more millions into health and education. The national govt. care about the rich people….perhaps that is where you are being confused Jay.

    • I’ve already had a wage rise under this lot after not having one in 9 years under National. Therefore it is indeed you who is extremely naive.
      To use a cliche like “by and large” means your only guessing. Once you start guessing, you may just as well say by and large National will win the next election.Then I will ask, what is your evidence.

  4. Sheer hypocrisy. And with the msm on extended break and RNZ in a brain-free zone, Nat press releases won’t be scrutinised. This is FAKE NEWS if ever there was one.

  5. This garbage being spewed out by Natz now, further confirms the party is at the end of its use by date, if this is the best it can do to contribute positive policy to NZ!

    The Labour led coalition should be a shoo in for the next two or three elections at least, if this drivel and BS continues, indicating what the alternative is!

  6. How does this sound?
    Kicked those tenants out because of ‘meth contamination’ did the places up, then sold them at inflated prices to immigrants and speculators.

  7. … [ ” Fuck National and anything their MP spawn have to say, their faux concern and crocodile tears are an obscenity when it comes to State Tenants ” ] .

    ^^^^^^

    T H I S .

  8. The rich and privileged are represented by the the Nasty Natz
    Labour picks and chooses who to target when they want to get back into government then are to frightened to do what needs to be done when they get there because of the rich and powerful.
    It is time we had a strong , powerful socialist alternative that above all is frightened of nobody and really speaks for everyone who is enslaved in this country.
    We need a Bernie or Corbyn to articulate real change.

  9. David Cameron and the Tories in the UK managed to pin the GFC on Gordon Brown and the Labour party in the UK public’s mind – this is the same approach that Simon and his cronies are taking, by conflating the Coalition with the failures in HNZ often enough, gradually they intend to convince NZ that it was all the Coalition government’s fault.

  10. I was just thinking that it’s so typical of the NZ National Party/government of the time to create a problem or in this instance a myth whilst in government. Waste copious amounts of NZ taxpayers money on enhancing the myth and will naturally blame the more recent government for the problem/myth that National created.
    Why does National so have this inability to take responsibility for their actions and inactions? Do they so possess such an arrogance that they are so above everyone else in NZ? Why would anyone in their right minds want to vote for a political party that so perfectly has alienated itself from ordinary NZers time and again?
    Will National ever apologise for their mistakes or do they deem themselves as sitting on the same level as God and therefore excused from admitting their faults?

    • The ChiNational party’s whole premise for existing is for profit. Right and wrong doesn’t come into it. Never has and it never will.

      And so long as some have been enriched while in office they consider that mission accomplished. Never mind thousands suffered as a result of their policy’s. They don’t care. Caring is not a part of their mission statement , at least not as they see it – ” part of their job brief”.

      Therefore blaming the next govt that doesn’t happen to be them for problems that THEY caused is par for the course.

      Of course they are going to try and skew history , and allocate blame.

      That IS part of their ‘ job brief ‘.

      Its how they get themselves reelected. By lying, basically. To rinse and repeat. To enrich themselves and their comrades no matter the social cost. And that’s why they can tell bald faced lies to the media and keep a straight face. Think of Stephen Joyce and the 11 billion dollar ‘hole’.

      Classic example.

      There is no sense of social conscience with them. Nor even a sense of nationalism. They are all for selling off the public’s assets and dismantling any last vestiges of protections for not only NZ working people but the NZ way of life.

      So I wouldn’t be shocked or dismayed at this latest at all.

      It is simply the ChiNational party being the ChiNational party.

  11. Every time national get in power they sell down our state houses now who benefits ( the rich and connected ) and who loses out from this policy (the poor Maori & PI) an its not like they haven’t done this before and they will continue to sell , divide and disempower until mugs stop voting for them. They are now trying to act like they care when we all know they fucken only care but themselves and their lot. This is a government that opened up our country to cheap labour and sold as many of our assets including valuable housing land in Auckland to the Chinese they are financially involved and have vested interest in the Chinese these are the people elected and who are suppose be looking after NZers but really lets be honest they are looking after themselves while at the same time putting the boot into others while feathering their own nests
