  1. Have signed the petition will get to film.

    Nice to see John acting and organising rather than just bleating ad nauseam as so many do in online forums–not that we should expect any less from John Minto!

  2. Signed!

    On one condition. Consecutive governments have deliberately made this housing crisis by not building state houses.

    Maori Land should not be used unless the owners of that land want housing on their land.

    The government/Crown needs to buy land, fund the building of the houses and take the risks involved.

    Treaty Settlements are not for the purpose of a government to dictate to iwi what to do with their 1% compensation for Raupatu & an Apology.

    Let the Crown/Government fix their housing problem that they created and take the risks involved.

    • Yeah have to agree with you on that. Some nice cinematography but lacked balance and hardly representative of the majority or the new practices that are becoming common place.

  3. I’ll sign it as soon as the government stops the violent minority of thugs who live in some of these houses from staying in them.

    • you have a point jays but the two things are unconnected why not just say yer ‘agin state housing and be done with it.

      • Because I’m not, that’s why.
        I’m more than happy for state housing to exist.
        However cheap accomodation should be a privilege that you have to earn by:
        1. Taking good care of the place.
        2. Not breaking the law.
        3. Not terrorising your neighbours.

        The housing crisis went from bad to absolutely diabolical under this government with tens of thousands of DESERVING people in shitty emergency housing.
        Why would we give it to urban terrorists when we can boot them out and give it to those who deserve it?

        Makes no damned sense at all.

        • Well said . Things will never improve if the truth cannot be told without being called out as being against a section of society. It may not have been PC but Luxon was on target when talking about bottom feeders.

        • I agree on the responsabilities of state tenants..they’re caretakers of state property, and if they fail as caretakers then it’s back to the private market for them…dunno but given that alternative I wouldn’t have a car on the lawn, would you? the dumb and anti social should pay for their dumb and anti social behaviour.

          as for lab and the crisis, it was a crisis under the nats who encouraged it to grow, labour have done nothing to fix it so it’s continued to inflate…the issue is with neo-lib failed market solutions not the temporary prole management committee we elect.

        • Whereas I don’t agree with Jay’s victorian deserving and undeserving poor number, the “urban terrorist” as he calls them are a serious problem. I know a situation in Christchurch City Housing where a 6 year old boy endured screeching abuse and death threats from a white power thug. The CCC said its a police matter. Police and they it’s a CCC matter. The CCC said “he shouldn’t be there in the first place” (he had every right) and later re white power “they’re worldly people – you should just not let him play on the grass” (which were the common grounds until the thugs took it over) The police told a concerned citizen “look mate, they’re animals. They should be put on a desert island to kill each other. If they want policing they should pay for it”.

          • sounds like a prime example ernie.
            half the problem is well have nice erudite shiny aspirational ‘mission statements’ in NZ which nobody enforces…so they’re waste paper.

            what ever happened to ‘quite enjoyment of the property’ being part of what rent is supposed to buy you….
            seriously someone should sue the housing dept though with our judiciary system probably fruitless

            • Absolutely, it’s ubiquitous across the public sector. Our market driven education system’s response to bullying is for our “self governing” schools to write their own anti-bullying policies, because “there is no single method or set of methods which can be applied to resolve all instances of problematic behavior, or to ensure the provision of a safe environment “. The application of that policy need only “fit within their contexts and take into account the needs and values of the school community”, in line with National Administrative guideline 5, which “acknowledges the fact that it is necessary for a for a school to take account of a wide range of contextual factors when developing and reviewing their approaches to a safe environment”.
              Outcomes are irrelevant, and accountability zero.  Or as the Ombudsman put it “the fact that the situation could have been handled differently does not amount to a failure”
              That effectively makes them judge, jury and executioner. A private feifdom by another name and is reflected in our ugly bullying and youth suicide rates.
              You can’t get legal aid to take a school or university to court
