    You're an evil -ist of some sort, Paul.

    Microagressionist?
    Dole basherist?
    Anti-Auckland-accommodation supplementist?
    Hatespeecherist?
    Must be some label you can be hung with, you vile seditionist, you.

    Oh I see, didn't read it properly.

    So what's the advantage of this then? You're saying there's more housing available in small towns... is that correct?

    Ah, you want to keep them on the dole?
    So make them live where there are no jobs and they will always be on the dole.
    Brilliant!

    If they've spent two years on the dole in a city with plenty of available jobs and are not making the effort to get one of them then for sure move them on. Make room in the cities for people who want to work.

    The notion is politically untenable - plain and simple.

    This is why the nation is failing politically.
    We have no strong right wing party to partner National, no mates nats are screwed.

    If ACT was strong enough to the right they might succeed, they need policy like this and such things as bringing back the death penalty.

    We as a country are too soft and too stupid.

    Instead of using prisoners to work on getting roads built quickly, they take 7 years and clog up the roads, spending millions on Cones and cone hire and reports.

    Instead of planting 100's of thousands of fruit tree's to feed people, they plant natives, I mean WTF, how stupid.

    Instead of widening the old farmers bus route, adding 50 buses and making it free, they spend billions on a central rail loop and **** up central Auckland business and traffic for multiple years.

    It is financial Armageddon by a thousand cuts.

    I think that you have implicity identified the problem.

    Once NZ had a left and right option.

    The conservative (gNats) and labour.

    A pro-business or a pro-labour.

    A blue or a red.

    Now, all we have is a turbid, faeces-like, in-the-middle-coloured, murky, malodorous brown.

    I.e. the gNats trying to be Labour-like and Labour trying to look business-like.

    No good has or can come of either false facade.

    Nor will it ever.

    The "I've been elected so I must be better / smarter / superior / more anointed than thou" syndrome is not just alive and well.

    It's burgeoning.

    And thus it has ever been.
