    You do have a point.

    Some people do expect everything for nothing.
    And the opposite, some ( women mostly, do everything for no thanks).

    It seems a reasonable expectation to me , to play a game without having the goalposts shifted or removed totally, halfway through.

    Get educated, work, get a house, pay for the kids education, pay off the house and start saving for retirement..

    I put the PM in 6 million dollar house.

    Aware that the houses next to Govt House in Akld are well above that in price, and some houses in NZ are in the tens of millions, and more.

        • Government sets out where it will build new public homes as waitlist reaches huge numbers

Transitional housing replaces motel stays as a place for those the most in need to stay while they wait for a public house.

          Suits and brand new label spades a-plenty. Sorry, Cindy, it'll take more than that and a staged photo-op. Notice the spare spades in the background? Local (non-manual) Labour supporters preferred to lean on sticks and brollies. Surprise, surprise!

            Why I don't feel sorry for landlords
            12 Feb 2021

            There's hogwash and more hogwash and worse hogwash.

            Nauseating. Totally un-balanced and gut-wrenchingly nauseating. I wonder if RNZ even sought any contrary opinion? Of course not.

            • I don't feel sorry for myself , infact I feel arrogantly smug about myself from how much wealth I managed to acquire these past 20 years..yes, I'm that jerk and proud of it.

                I'm with you on that.
                Supermarkets and chain stores, scourge of the local community.
                It was much nicer going to the local butcher or baker, or florist.
                (I remember as a kid being shown how to cut up a sheep by our local butcher).

                Now sadly, they've all but been squeezed out of existence.
                .
                And have you noticed that the quality is going down in the chain stores.
                and the packaging is very misleading.
                and the choices are dwindling.

                There was no plastic wrap to dispose of from the butchers either, just good old paper.

                • New Gummint Housing Crisis Plan Revealed!

                  • I see Nicola Willis, National's housing spokesperson, said in he House this week that if there is a housing emergency treat it like the Christchurch earthquake emergency. Work together, release land, scrap rules and regulations that add delay, cost and little value.

                    What's wrong with that as a plan?

                    • On the surface, nothing wrong at all.

                      But if it was anything like Kiwibuild, it's chances of success are small.

                      Socio-commies like Labour and the Watermelon crowd need lots of rules and regulations.

                      It gives them control, which is what they want, most of all.

                      • I'd like a world with no rules, with everyone being smart enough and considerate enough to allow freedom and functionality to all..
                        But that's just not how people are.

                        Long before Capatalism or Communism or Socialism or Green considerations, there was the New Zealand Company.

                        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Zealand_Company

                        Busy getting a monopoly on land.

                        Along came the Government to null all claims.(And stop their illegal tactics).

                        So how do you put that down to political ideologies?
                        Considering none of them even existed back then?

                        "The second major flaw arose because a large proportion of the land in the new colony was bought for speculative reasons by people who had no intention of migrating to New Zealand and developing the land they had bought. This meant that the new colonies had a serious shortage of employers and consequently a shortage of work for the labouring classes. From the outset the New Zealand Company was forced to be the major employer in the new colonies and this proved a serious financial drain on the company. Repeated approaches were made to the British government seeking financial assistance and in late 1846 the company accepted an offer for a £236,000 advance with strict conditions on, and oversight of, future company operations".

                        • Half a clue is better than no clues at all.
                          Well I never! An econ-o-mist who seems to have at least half of a clue more than the W'gton woodenheads.

                          Here's why I can't get excited about 12 families getting homes

                          • Here's why I can't get excited about 12 families getting homes | Stuff.co.nz

                            When the Government released a video this week revealing it had put 12 families into newly built homes through its progressive homeownership scheme, it generated a few double-takes.

                            “Transformational stuff on top of the raging success of KiwiBuild,” one Twitter user commented.

                            The three most harmful addictions are heroin, carbohydrates and a monthly salary - Fred Wilson.

                              Yup.

                              So much hype and so little result.

                              If they had never mentioned the whole project and suddenly pulled 12 houses out of the blue, then you have a surprise.

                              Under promise, over deliver, the first rule of satisfaction.

Candace Westnedge, 30, is “beyond exhausted” after spending the past five months trying to secure a house for herself and her 15-month-old son, Braxton. “From the day I was given notice I started applying for rentals and my previous landlord told me she could give me an outstanding reference,” Westnedge said.
