The idiocy of this whole farce is breathtaking to say the least. Whilst ex PM Key (who has now slithered from view) has more than one mansion to live and holiday in, our govt/corp buys mansions for its reps abroad and 33K homes sit empty in Auckland owned by off shore speculators with that latter city now the most expensive to buy in planet wide … we have the same establishment lending thousands of dollars to the homeless for emergency motel accommodation & leaving them deep in debt. And these homes (including others) sit empty. Um, who exactly is controlling the purse strings (the same folk who got us neck deep in debt) and why are they not sacked? (They could have loaned that money to the homeless as a deposit on a home). And soon we’ll doubtless have another equally as incompetent set of riders for the very same corporate horse that’s running the show. This is all a crime of obscene proportions … the homelessness I’m referring to. From a nation that once housed all, to folk living in cars, sheds and garages. Shame, shame New Zeeland. Shame on the Nats, shame on Labour too who helped us all down this road that’s looking frightening indeed for many. The steely, cold reality of the UN’s plan for so called ‘sustainable development’. With all their flowery rhetoric they never had any intention of helping the poor or equalizing wealth. People need to wake up to that. The Nats have been LAND BANKING OUR state homes since 2012. Corruption at its ugliest … somewhat thinly disguised gentrification. This was only ever about enriching the rich who plan eventually to own everything. Don’t believe me? Read Rosa Koire’s ‘Behind the Green Mask’. You’ll find it on Amazon. Or see her on our Agenda 21/30 pages. And read below about the Porirua houses that have sat empty for four years. Write to Nick Smith and tell him how disgusted you are.
First they were too big and now they’re too small but soon, according to Housing New Zealand, four empty houses in Porirua City will be just right.
The properties have been empty for four years, the last tenants relocated so the houses could be earthquake proofed – something HNZ now says they didn’t need.
Ten months after the agency tried to sell the three-bedroom houses because the demand was for smaller homes. It now has plans to remodel the properties into accommodation for larger families.
