The Housing Crisis: A Midwife Delivering Babies by the Light of Her Cell Phone

Copy of IMG_4864.JPG

With Banker Key in denial about the housing crisis (41,000 homeless isn’t a crisis?), a multitude of ‘pass the buck’ reasons for why we’re a bit short of roofs over heads (Labour’s fault, you know, that other rider of the same corporate horse) … and a midwife delivering babies in squalor by the light of her cell phone. It’s sounding more and more like Dickensian England.

Welcome to Paradise in the South Seas, GE free, nuclear free and clean and green to boot.

Mr Key (who grew up in a state house like the ones he is now selling off en mass) owns tens of millions of dollars’ worth of property, including his family home in Parnell, two holiday homes, an office and an apartment in London.

John Key blames Helen Clark for housing crisis

By   newshub

A midwife is expected to tell how she’s had to deliver babies at night by the light of her cellphone at the cross-party inquiry into homelessness.

The inquiry, set up by Labour, the Greens and the Maori Pary, is in Tauranga on Monday. The Government blocked efforts to open an official investigation into the crisis, which is at record levels according to both research and social agencies like the Salvation Army.

“In her submission she talks about delivering babies by the light of her cellphone in squalid houses that don’t have any electricity,” Labour housing spokesperson Phil Twyford told Paul Henry.

Labour wants a state of emergency declared over the housing crisis, particularly in Auckland where prices are at record highs and still rising.

Prime Minister John Key says that won’t happen, and the housing crisis – if it is one – is not his fault.

“Under the nine years that Helen was Prime Minister, my friend, nationally house prices went up 102 percent. Under us in eight years, they’ve gone up 43. In Auckland they went up 87 percent I think – under us it’s about the same,” he said.

“If it was a state of emergency now, a crisis now, why wasn’t it a state of emergency and a crisis then?”
