      UN right about 'human rights' housing crisis, but wrong about the solution
      25 Feb 2020



      And isn't it interesting that the UN's farha-way distraction has done so little homework as to suggest a CGT, oblivious to Taxcinda Tooth Fairy's announcement on the subject.

      Doh!?
      I have a real problem with somebody who says adding a tax on something will make it more affordable. Has it worked anywhere ever?

      A CGT is levied in a lot of places with expensive housing and hasn't stopped the housing being expensive.

      The adherents of a CGT are unbelievable stupid if they think that imposing one in NZ will produce drastically different results to other places it has been imposed. A bit like the loony commies who suggest communism is the best form of government, and when the abject failures are pointed out. Reply with it just hasn't been done properly yet. Blinded by ideology and can't see the obvious flaws that anybody with the smallest ability at critical thinking can pick up on almost instantly.

      Cheers

      • Morons of the Nation Unite! (Under Labour)

        Spacie has it right and this cartoon - which I've posted more than a few times - epitomises the profoundly stupid within the ranks of the even more egregiously stupid socialist morons who are 1000% devoid of any capacity to learn from their innumerable mistakes. Or the mistakes of their congenitally idiotic progenitors



        As for the NZ gummint inviting yet another vacuous idiot - at taxpayers expense, no doubt - one wonder what Comrade Commissar Clarke had to do with such an asinine idea.

        • Yes definitely that UN moron Leilani Farha needs to be sent packing . Her idea is that evictions should be illegal .Honestly this is the corrupt socialist "├┐ou got it , we'll take it from you" narrative constantly coming out of the UN. High time we left this organization who are just looking for ways to extract more money to carry out its plan of global takeover.

          • The best part of her visit - we the tax payers paid for it.
            The level of ongoing incompetence and stupidity from our public servants is just staggering.

Plus I'd be surprised if young people could afford to live alone - they're staying at home later and as such maybe when they do finally leave the nest, if they're not partnered up, then it's the one bed apartment? As mentioned in the article older people are not comfortable getting in younger flatmates.

                The article also mentions the lack of community so meeting people is harder for older folk and people not keen on Tinder etc.

                I wonder if there has been any match ups here on PropertyTalk?

                cheers,

                • Sounds like a simple solution until you look at the new restrictions on rentals in NZ.

                  No insulation in an airBNB would mean it can't be rented.

                  No code of compliance on that kitchenette put in to allow you to airBNB as an 'entire place' listing means it can't be rented.

                      Yes I was thinking this, heaps of them can't just be converted to long term rentals aye?

                      Not unless they rent to 'flatmates' I guess.

                      • I was wondering about the numbers of returning locals and the impact on housing and rentals especially. Mr Peters said there are some 80,000 travelling, and there are hundreds of thousands in Australia who, if they lose their jobs might have to head back here. To family and possibly welfare if they don't qualify there.

                        Meanwhile visa holders here will probably be allowed to have them renewed as they pretty much can't leave.

                          Bunnings clocks up 100 flatpack houses; but it's a competitive market

And in doing so, it has proved a competitive alternative, not just to other hardware chains, but to the myriad home builders at the lower end of the market.

                          • Speculation Invited

                            If the socio-commies had somehow miraculously been able to 'conjure up' 30,000 houses in their last term - affordable or not - what impact might that have had on today's alleged housing crisis? (1 Dec 2020)

                            • Its one thing to 'conjure up' 30,000 houses but its quite another to find somewhere to put them.

                              The reality is that you cannot just walk into a large grassy field and proclaim "Let there be houses".

                              Think protests from lawyers, iwi, greenies and then think water, power, sewage, stormwater and roads.

                                I imagine that every PT Forumite knows that.

                                Unfortunately, though, that leads to uncomfortable questions

                                1) Were the socio-commies promoting the idea ignorant of those impediments?

                                2) Were the socio-commies promoting the idea fully conversant with the impossibility of their pre-election promise?

                                I.e. Thoroughly well-informed, voter-duping self-interest or abysmal ignorance?

                                Neither prospect is in any way reassuring.
