The Nats have Sold Out NZ with a half-trillion-dollar debt

Thanks Key, you have us right exactly (in my opinion) where  you wanted us. For starters we figure you’re profiting from this debt. For seconds we are now ripe for New World Order one world government given the borrower is slave to the lender. Forty two thousand beleaguered people without a roof over their heads. Children in poverty & our teens committing suicide. Beats me how you all have the gall to display on your election ads… “a strong economy delivering for NZers” … what? …”one of the fastest growing economies in the developed world…?”
They are choosing not to notice of course the aforementioned child poverty, homelessness & teen suicide. Stats to be proud of? These people are delusional and think we are all mentally impaired. Key, the smiling assassin, has been replaced with a slightly friendlier looking version of himself, and second in charge, a woman who’s allegedly committed welfare fraud.  (Which you’ll likely never find out about now from the rumour I heard recently). They’re sailing on like nothing’s happened in spite of an eye witness, and meanwhile Metiria’s been dealt to for her comparatively minor misdemeanors. They are dismantling our sovereignty brick by brick. Wake up peoples. (The meme below is from the video showing you the various world leaders on the end game of their so called new world order).  Tie that in with the Agenda 21/2130 plans and it all fits very nicely. Same people. Their other Trojan horse into our respective sovereign nations aside from crippling debt, is the local district councils (sustainable development aka trash everything) which note are all also in obscene debt. My district $68-100 million. ‘No worries’ they tell us, the future generations are able to share in paying for everything.

So read on about our humongous debt. 
New Zealand now owes almost half a trillion dollars in debt – and a growing chunk of it belongs to ordinary households, mainly borrowing to buy property. In the start of a week-long series Tamsyn Parker spells out the problem.

New Zealand is sitting on a half-a-trillion-dollar debt bomb and Kiwis are increasingly treating their houses like cash machines, piling on the debt as they watch the value of their properties soar.

Reserve Bank figures show household debt, excluding investment property, has risen 23 per cent in the past five years to $163.4 billion. Incomes have risen only 11.5 per cent.

Households are now carrying a debt level that is equivalent to 162 per cent of their annual disposable income – higher than the level reached before the global financial crisis.

Including property investment the total debt households owed as of April was $232.9 billion, according to the Reserve Bank.

Satish Ranchhod, a senior economist at Westpac Bank, says the main driver has been low interest rates.

“Continued low interest rates have sparked a sharp increase in household borrowing at a time when income growth has been very modest.”

And it’s housing loans where the growth has mainly come from.

Housing loan debt has risen 23.4 per cent to $132.83 billion. Student loans were up 22.9 per cent to $14.84 billion and consumer loans are up 16.6 per cent to $15.7 billion.

Consider who is fueling the media with all the current beehive finger pointing

From William McGregor

O.M.G. – Is the media for real?!

I really am DISGUSTED with the way the media has played up the whole Metiria Turei saga – the way she wasn’t 100% honest while collecting the D.P.B…..
While it is NOT a good look (that she collected a few bucks more than she was entitled to) and she appears to be a dishonest person in among a Parliament of honest people, just how bad is their memory?!
Bill English (the Prime Minister of Aotearoa) was collecting OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS A WEEK by renting out his private home in the Hutt, living in accommodation paid for by the people of N.Z., and NOT SAYING A BLOODY WORD until it was brought to light after years of “double-dipping”; he would have collected more in a year (almost 60k a year) than Meteria Turei – before it was uncovered.
His 2 I.C. (second in command) Paula Bennett is no better!  (And to hear her speaking “holier than thou” …. that’s got to be just as big a joke! ….)

help from media

Honestly – if THIS is the level we have stooped to in the Political Arena of Aotearoa, we are COMPLETELY STUFFED!
Ask EVERY MEMBER (regardless of their party affiliation) who hasn’t been honest, who’s hidden the truth from any Government Department (I.R.D. included) to leave – and I’d be willing to bet there wouldn’t be a single person left in the Beehive AT ALL!

And it is being fueled by the media.
So, look deeper – who is fueling the media?!

I think this is being engineered to make people MORE CONFUSED about who to vote in at the Elections later in the year, and (hopefully) stay away from the Polling Booths.

DON’T play their games!

Finally … Some Important Information to Consider Before you Vote or Don’t Vote:

What the Metiria Turei smoke screen is actually shifting your focus from

For several days we’ve been bombarded with the alleged historical misdemeanours of the Greens’ Metiria Turei. (A google search will provide you plenty of info on that). She has confessed and is apparently paying up what she owes. However, we’ve heard nary a whisper on the alleged, equally illegal activities of the new Deputy Prime Minister. What’s good for the goose is surely good for the gander don’t you think? Or is it all just a handy smoke screen at this particular point in time? Media is hammering it. Should you be in the dark on the allegations raised regarding Ms Bennett, have a listen to the interview below of a whistle blower who knew her as a young person growing up. He did try to make this public six years ago he said but was shut down. He’s being a little more strategic now. The language is graphic (a warning for sensitive ears) but the message is clear and raw…. people in glass houses shouldn’t be throwing stones. As has happened with Metiria, so also should happen with the Deputy PM. And then the PM Bill English has been found out, and in the media regarding his houses. These people should all be fully investigated where necessary, instead of focusing on one Metiria who is looking very much like the sacrificial cow right now. If nothing else with these two women, they’ve demonstrated that it is very difficult to make ends meet on a benefit.

Now I’m all for forgive and move on, however this is a political arena, and these are our ‘esteemed’ (?) leaders. They are highlighting one and hiding the other. Let’s get some balance and some fairness surely and investigate the lot not just a select one?

Why our state housing stock is being sold off while thousands of Kiwis are homeless

This is a repost of this article. Timely as in HNZ has just announced they’ll be shortly out of funds. No surprizes! Why if these people have degrees in accountancy are they running us into the ground peeps? Do check out the links recommended in the older article here (Agenda 21 and Banking), and read about the new debacle here.
EnvirowatchRangitikei


The Prime Minister John Key announced earlier this year that he intended to sell off  1000 to 2000 of NZ’s state houses. Large numbers of these homes were built by the first Labour government in 1935 and as of 2013 the stock numbered 69,000. That era had marked the birth of our welfare state and the tenants of the first house that was finished and let in 1937, paid just one third of their income in rent. Fifty years later we had the Labour government promising to remain involved in NZ’s housing market, then with the event of  Rogernomics and Roger Douglas’s neo liberal economic policies (the new economic ‘experiment’ that benefited those at the top of the capitalist pyramid and launched the ever increasing gap between rich and poor) rents were raised to market rates. Tenants could then apply for a government subsidy called an accommodation benefit,  effectively subsidizing the landlords. By 1997, 60 years later, tenants were paying three quarters of their income in rent. The welfare state in NZ, having officially begun with the Social Security Act in 1938 and the state ensuring every New Zealand family had at least a minimum standard of living, was now descending rapidly into an abyss of debt and for many, poverty. We’ve effectively gone from free milk in schools to kids with no lunch at all.

In a recent article by Bryan Bruce, advocate for NZ’s children in poverty, and maker of the documentaries ‘Mind the Gap’ and ‘Inside Child Poverty‘,  some interesting questions are raised, questions many New Zealanders have also been asking.  Questions like why is the Key government selling off our state housing stock, especially when thousands of families have nowhere to live? NZ is in fact experiencing a housing crisis, described by the Salvation Army as an ‘unfolding social disaster’. On the one hand we have soaring house prices in Auckland that have so inflated the market few can afford them, and on the other, according to Auckland’s City Mission estimates,  the numbers of people sleeping rough in Auckland for the year 2013-2014 virtually doubled.

The NZ Parliament website states that a “2013 University of Otago study using 2001 and 2006 Census figures and emergency housing data estimated that 12,900-21,100 dwellings would be needed to house the 2006 severely housing deprived population. These were in addition to housing required to address other forms of need, and underlying demand”. 

In total, “An estimated 34,000 people, or about one in every 120 New Zealanders, were unable to access housing” in that year  (University of Otago Monday, 23 September 2013).

“A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.”
~ Mahatma Ghandi

Now it gets interesting. The usual rationale proffered for asset sales since they began with Rogernomics,  have been ‘to get us out of debt’ or ‘save us money’, giving the impression they are no longer breaking even let alone making a profit.  Bruce however reveals that the HNZ corporation has in fact been making a very healthy profit (links in his article).  Clearly it would be more prudent to keep this asset.

Further facts Bruce highlights are:

  • the housing stock is worth $18 billion
  • the operating surplus for 2013 was $121 million
  • the same year it returned a $90 million profit
  • the previous two years’ profit were $76 and $68 million
  • profits have increased significantly under the National government

Bruce raises questions like, where did those profits go? Why have they not reinvested the profits into the housing stock?  Why sell housing stock in the regions when they are presumably encouraging folks to move to the regions? (Agenda 21 maybe? … the real plan  for UN’s Agenda 21 aka Sustainable Development is to have populations relocated out of rural and into urban areas).

You may not be aware of this, but NZ is a corporation. Our country is listed on the Securities and Exchange Commission website as a corporation under the name of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. Most will be aware that corporations are required to turn a profit … to maximize profits is their legal mandate. They are not about, nor are they required to be about the welfare of people. (Watch two minute movie trailer for ‘The Corporation’ below).

So as our corporation steams along at full speed, rapidly selling off both our country and its assets,  those who head it up are giving us the impression they govern as elected representatives of the people. In a sense they do but their real agenda, their corporate bottom line, is hidden from view. Corporations if you study them, and as the above trailer illustrates quite succinctly, are not required to consider the effects their economic activities have on people. I strongly urge you to watch the full documentary on ‘The Corporation’ page. You will then be joining some dots and making sense of what is really happening in our midst. As long as we remain a corporation, poverty will not disappear. The welfare state has always existed merely to give capitalism a human face. That capitalism is now shamelessly profit driven and the human face is disappearing fast.
