What on earth is she doing???
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is putting some onus on the public for the housing crisis, saying the Government had tried taxation to ease the soaring market three times without public support.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
SHE is the one who ruled out a capital gains tax.
SHE is the one who ruled out a wealth tax.
SHE is the one who green-lit $100Billion into property speculation.
SHE is the one who failed with KiwBuild.
and SHE is the one who decided to continue a racist drug law by refusing to reform cannabis.
I appreciate that last one has nothing to do with house prices but I could really do with a joint after reading her comments.
Can I get a hell yeah?
Brothers and Sisters, having Jacinda blame ‘us’ because property speculating boomers have leveraged themselves into a powerful interest group and make meaningful change difficult is kinda like Trump blaming all those pesky voting citizens for losing the election.
Leadership requires doing difficult things, sure forcing all those property speculating boomers to hand over some of that ill gotten booty ain’t going to be easy, but that’s the job isn’t it.
Blaming ‘us’ for her lack of Leadership on Housing should be a giant flashing warning sign that the Prime Minister is disconnected from the reality of the situation.
This is Jacinda’s ‘Let them rent cake’ moment.
