    Go on keep making mountains out of mole hills , you are just like them, sorry to see this from you stoploss.. The kiwi build was ambitious but there were too many hurdles to go that fast, fess up reset and keep going. Something this country needs try try and try again.
    National insiders betraying their employers is disgusting, stooping as lows one can go.So many successes conveniently forgotten.

    To balance this, just a few things promised and how the Year of Delivery is doing on the big ticket items ... Affordable homes, trees, police, EVs, homelessness, emissions, net migration, child poverty.

    Good to see that a net 66,000 non-NZers came/migrated to NZ last year and that a net 11,000 NZers left the country

    That’ll keep the economy going .. as NZ a bit rooted without migration

    You (should)know this is a National spin mouth piece, if you must use it put it on the National thread.

    As this is a free and open forum I think Artemis can put it where they wish. In fact it is very relevant to the Labour government as it shows how inept they have been during the last year.

    No one can address this particular problem, as money is created when people borrow and spend(on houses). If my understanding is correct, if people don't keep buying houses at higher and higher prices then the money supply could contract and something else would happen (some people suggest deflation(house price falls) and the end of the world but that seems a bit overdramatic).

    Talking to an immigration consultant it is a lot more work to get an immigrant in the country since Labour came to power but it doesn't seem to have stemmed the tide. (Sorry that sounds racist but I am more of an across the board Xenophobe). Sad to see Kiwibuild failing or wasting money but nice to see our elected representatives are at least trying to do something about a crisis, real, perceived or otherwise.

    Note that there is no housing crisis if you already own a house and/or have rental property.
    The tide - actually more New Zealanders coming back from overseas, and less New Zealanders leaving.

    Surely Raymond Huo wasn’t suggesting that his leader Jacinda learns to grovel to the Chinese like the Nats do it.

    @jasonwells92
    PM Jacinda Ardern asks a hall full of high school kids what they think her favourite subject in school was.

    "PE," yells one brave kid, to which Ardern replied:

    "Are you kidding? I am probably the least co-ordinated Prime Minister in History."

    That honour belongs to Don Brash. In 2005 the then leader of the National Party wobbled his way across a plank to board a moored boat.
