    Yep wastecare is a joke, they will charge you the full highest price if on tank but have waste water, even if only one person is in the house.

    Jacinda does it for vital reasons. John Key does It to stop property plummeting 40%, so we then put the 36% he saved back into property as inflation instead of learning a lesson from it.

    Yeah, a lot of people in hype markets just give all their rights away. Nuts.

    We did this sale by the book, that's partly why it pisses me off. I am a little annoyed at the quality of building...
