    So much for Andrew Little’s assertion that more than 100 more ICU beds have been added in the last 15 months.

    Unable to deliver and knowing that spin does not work anymore, this government is now resorting to lies.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/covid-...JEZHSOCNCPXHI/

    Capital and Coast District Health Board intensive care specialist Dr Paul Young spoke out after Health Minister Andrew Little told RNZ that since the pandemic began about 100 more ICU beds had been added nationally.

    "Dear @AndrewLittleMP," he wrote on Twitter.

    "I am afraid that your assertion that the number of staffed ICU beds has increased from 234 to 340 in the past 15 months is false.

    "I challenge you to visit any ICU in the country and find one clinician (just one) who can show their newly staffed beds."

    Cindy was going to make housing affordable and eradicate child poverty, remember?

    A good example of how she has not only failed but failed spectacularly.

    But hi, she has five additional voters in the future for the Labour Party. He strategy of breeding ever more beneficiaries is working!

    This is exactly what Labour wants. Step daddy government will pay for whatever many children can be squeezed out. Most of these children will grow with a rolemodel at home that never works and will expect the same type of lifestyle. Equals more voters.

    These articles are all the same. Single mother, 4-12 children, no work. I mean what goes through your head when you have 2-3 children, already having problems feed the family, living in rental and you decide to get couple more children?

    How much is childcare.. probably 4k per week all up.

    Apart from the 4 year old it seems like they were all born under a National administration.

    Under Clueless Cindy, we’ll spin & lie on not delivering what we say, and not say what we do by stealth.

    People are known to breed in more impoverished situations. It's one of the strongest links there is.

    Africa = 5 to 6 kids per family.
    Britain in 1900 = same.

    The developed world today = 1 to 1.5.

    She’s getting more ‘income’ than many people who work full-time.

    —————

    ‘Gartner's income is $1127 a week ($58,604 a year), made up of various benefits and disability allowances for her eldest son's medical needs. It doesn't go far.

    Groceries for five kids: $400 a week. Payments on her car loan: $150. Repayments for various Work and Income hardship grants she's received over the years: $60.50.
    She kicks in another $200 to her father's household bills.
    Then there are fees for a rent-to-buy washing machine and dryer. Rental of a storage unit. Other debts to repay. Insurance. Petrol. Phone. Internet. Netflix for the kids.
    On a good week, she might have $65 left over.’

    And that's with no rent to pay, maybe a little bit of the $200pw towards rent, and what looks like some serious debt. Not hard to see why some hundreds of landlords won't take a chance on her as a tenant, even though she might be a good one. Recent changes to tenancy rules make it a really bad decision to take on a potential risk.
