    NZTA research has a different view. The least deprived (wealthiest) have 25% of 5 Star Safety rated cars and only 13% of the most deprived have a 5 star cart. (Which makes me wonder how they can afford such cars). The most deprived have 35% of unsafe cars (1 star safety rated) whereas the wealthier have 24% 1 star cars - which helps explain why they might be wealthy. (They value less depreciating assets over safety ratings). Pretty much 50% of wealthy and poor have 2 - 4 safety star cars.

    Plenty of quite well off people drive older cars (they generally have respect for their money)- and plenty of absolute losers drive poncey expensive cars, ticked up to the max. Surveys in the states show that the most popular choice in cars for financially independent people is a second hand Ford.

    She obviously isnt very well informed. She was boring David Attenborough on the climate change panel with her "Climate change is the biggest threat to our world.

    If you believe the World Health Organisation, they reckon one of the big current / future risks is air pollution. They reckon it kills 78 million people a year. Whereas between 2030 and 2050 they expect 250,000 peoepl to die from CLimate change things each year.

    Then you have the anti-vaxers. Apparently there has been a 30% increase in global measles outbreak.

    Or you can pick the 1.6 million people who die from antibiotic resistant Tuberculosis.

    Theres also concern about a Flu pandemic. Not if but when. Or new outbreaks of Ebola. or the 390 million Dengue infections a year.

    Thats without even thinking of global financial crisis, war, nano -technology or an ever increasing world population

    Jeez that Twyford is a twit. Everyone knew Labour would never get 1,000 Kiwibuilds done by July. Looks like he is going to struggle to even hit 300?

    Totally blinkered by ideology in the total absence of common sense and bereft of any understanding of economic reality.

    NZ Initiative report out yesterday said KiwiBuild has become Housing Minister Phil Twyford's tar baby .....whatever that means

    Twyford liked that NZ Initiative when he was in Opposition.

    Twyford, Lees Galloway and Curran as ministers shows the lack of talent they had to pick from. Then of course there's Willy Jackson and Kelvin Davis ......
    Somehow these no-hopers make even Andrew Little look good.
