  • Tenants on newshub now making death threats and calling us terrorists

    "These landlords mite aswell start digging there holes cause this sort of action wont go unpunished or worse retaliation from the evicted good luck"

    "If landlords were in graves, the houses would still be there. So what's their contribution again?"

    "The mere threat of this shows they are a very, very long way from good. Isn't trying to blackmail the government to control their actions classed as terrorism."

    "We far outnumber your tiny band of greedy fascist landlords. Let your houses remain empty until you're forced to sell, and our job is one well done. Bye."

    "We will take our complaints directly to the fascist landlords trying to rewrite the rules. Let their houses remain empty. Force them to sell. Job done."

    "Because you have the papers to say you have a mortage on a property doesnt actually mean you own it. Banks own it until its paid for and if tenants stop paying because they are fighting back to challenge your power play and refuse to move , what do you think you or the authorities could do about a few million squatting tenants."

    ​​​​​​"If they want a class war, I say bring it on! We vastly outnumber these parasites"

    "Landlords that want to toss their toys in the air and punish innocent paying tenants the goverment should seize the home."

    "Then retaliation could occur and you may need to renovate/repair it for real"

    ​​"we should smash every window in every rental on the same day"

    That really annoys me.

    It's " their " holes, not "there" holes.

    I don't mind "mite" instead of "might".. so much.

    Yup someone is under too much stress.
    Still, the general tone of mania does remind me of a certain radio host.

        An anecdotal statistic that needs to be kept in mind:
        * 95% of LLs are fair, reasonable and decent people.
        * 90% of tenants are fair, reasonable and decent people.

        The noisy minority (in both camps) are just that.

        Have a look-see at this item:

        'Not a priority': Renters feel overlooked after Government's housing announcement
        27 Mar 2021

        When Caroline heard there was to be a housing policy announcement, her hopes were high. This was the Government’s chance to address a worsening housing crisis which, in her opinion, Labour was elected to do. But the package contained no safeguards or help for renters. “My heart just sank,” she said. Caroline is a renter in Wellington, and she's disappointed the Government’s housing package contains no protections for renters. Caroline said it was “blatantly obvious that renters were not a priority”.
        Of course, there was no housing policy announcement, either, despite being called that. It was a blatant attack on one sector of the NZ business community with a tax-grab add-on, all cleverly spun as a housing policy, using expressions like 'loophole,' 'interest write-off' and 'speculator.'

        None of which were true in any way at all. The reality is that the gov't does not have a viable housing policy (nor did it have one with the ill-fated kiwibuild) so the announcement had another motive. It successfully distracted attention from that lack of policy and put implied blame on others, viz. LLs.

        There is a shortage of:

        * houses

        * infrastructure in the form of roads, storm water management, electricity & fibre reticulation, fresh water supply and waste water removal for new houses

        * building materials from sink benches to shower trays to toilet pans for new houses

        * trades people to build and fit out new houses

        The anti-business measures disguised as gov't housing policy will do nothing to solve those problems and nothing tangible to assist the plight of many tenants in residential rentals. No help at all.

        I've seen just one comment in which the observer said there was a danger that such anti-business measures could have a chilling impact on business investment, as investors would now ponder which business sector might next be in the sights of the socio-commie-leaning NZ government.

        E.g. Might food or energy suppliers suddenly find that interest on borrowings - a normal cost of doing business - may suddenly cease to be tax deductible? Or worse, such as removal of depreciation allowance on certain items of their essential stock?

        What should bother us the most is why it is that there is no informed and incisive analysis of such dubious pronouncements. Certainly not in the NZ media, anyway. We appreciate that the NZ media is on tax-payer-funded life-support, courtesy of the government. Is that what prevents valid criticism of [so-called] NZ gov't policy?

          It's the news being unfair, only reporting on housing increase. Where in fact it is inflation, and not only price of housing is up, but most things like food, and petrol, insurance, rates, water, etc. But everyday is housing unaffordability news

            I used to lunch with a bunch of reporters.
            " If it bleeds it leads" that was their motto.

              Minimum wage will increase soon, so businesses will raise their price, just the same as landlords raising rents when the costs rises. Let's see if they get threats for that

                Until facebook starts taking seriously complaints about fake profiles and threats, they will keep posting. I have stopped commenting on Newshub's FB these days for much the same reason. Rarely does it matter what the topic relates to.
