    It is really sad to see Labor supporters celebrate that they get rid of our own people - just to make their poor housing policies looking a bit better.

    We are nearly one year into this populist government. Just wondering - how many of the 10,000 promised additional houses per year did our government build so far?
    I’ve always thought it a bit sad that since the 80s every year there has been a negative net outflow of NZ citizens

    From that article — Since 1986, an average of 21,600 more Kiwis have left than arrived back

    So over the last 32 years that’s nearly a net 700,000 Kiwis who have deserted NZ. Just as well we allow foreigners to come to this country


    Nobody seems to have explained why.

    About a third of my generation - siblings and cousins - went to Australia in their early 20s or so. About 12. None came back. All settled there and raised families.

    My sister came back to NZ after her OE and tried to settle but couldn't. Mind you that was Palmerston North. Several others were also from the provinces, some rural.

    Small sample but bright lights over the ditch beckoned.
