    Surely this is how "fake news" grows its own myths. Who'd have thought...Jacinda Adern and Trump already have something in common!
    Sorry forgot to source, The most honest source in the country first from someone being interviewed on Radio NZ National and then later from the same source i think or it may have come from a far weaker national prone source TV1 who rely on funding a lot more. Its growing fast( hence the variation) so wouldn't surprise me if the $200,000 has been hit by now.

    Whats your point; some will inevitably drop away and more will come.

    I have no need to JT, I'm not the one throwing wildly varying numbers about. I'm particularly suspicious of the 1000 new volunteers figure. Nice round number that. Very quickly collated as well. I wonder where that was plucked from?

    I don't like her idea of 3 years free tertiary education. Education for adults has to be valued and adults should be prepared to contribute to that value.

    I also don't like the idea of new affordable homes for first time buyers.

    I figure a right of passsge on the old property ladder is to start with an affordable dunger and work up from there

    You are absolutely right about that. I like to see new homes built to a reasonably high standard of design and construction - ideally for those who have built up equity. Every new house built adds to the pool and if it's not 'affordable' to first home buyers it simply doesn't matter, because it inevitably frees up a second hand home down the line.

    That logic doesn't stack up with a growing population being fuelled by immigration. The new housing stock can be snapped up by new arrivals

    If that's the case at least they would have to 'snap up' a quality long life building equipped with up to date features. Every new dwelling is an extra one. Why build cheap homes for new immigrants to snap up! Nothing solved by building cheap housing. High quality duplex units would free up two existing older houses, or accommodate one immigrant and one existing home owner .

    Why not Quonset/Nissan huts? Cheap - 4days to build - Then jack them up on posts, fil in the sides and call them Dutch Barns? I have lived in worse.

    If they can't afford the housing why are they coming into the county?

    I didn't say they couldn't Mini. I just pointed out that new stock doesn't automatically free up an older house elsewhere.

    She's a socialist, so expect all sorts of things she offers to 'give' you, just as long as you pay for it.

    Yeah maybe check the level of your moat, top it up grease your drawbridge cogs and lift the drawbridge and bathe in your golden hoard and eat golden marmalade on golden ingots; look after yourself only. good luck laying the golden eggs
