    Default KiwiBuild - Labour's latest spectacularly stupid idea.

    You have to read this...
    Labour will tap the government's cheap borrowing costs to launch a ten-year programme to build 100,000 homes at less than NZ$300,000 each if it gets into power in 2014, leader David Shearer announced over the weekend.

    Shearer said around two-thirds of the houses built over the first five years of the programme would likely be in Auckland.

    Other developments would be built around New Zealand in places of high housing costs, such as Christchurch, Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty, Nelson, Wellington and Queenstown Lakes District.

    Affordable housing in Queenstown is funny there is hardly any jobs to justify it and land values are very high.

    Yea. well.
    It's an interesting question
    I like the why questions just as much as the how questions or should questions.
    I guess the why is obvious.
    The same reason you have a ref in sport, or a Speaker in Parliament.
    To get a fair game for all.
    The other alternative is an animalistic fight.


    I could fix the How for them.

    And as for the should?...hmmmm… i'll have to have a think about it.

    How do they stop a 1st timer renting them out? Saying they have to live there for a period of time - ok, does that mean an army of inspectors dropping by randomly to ensure owner is home? hahaahaha give me a ****ing break.

    You can't.
    But if it is operated legally then there are two Govt agencies that would have knowledge.

    So you'd fudge it by calling them "flatmates" and possibly making an appearance now & again.

    So, this very small possibility is your biggest criticism?
    I have no doubt you are saving the big gun reasons for your next post.

    BTW people that would try this are usually stupid enough to want to brag to their mates as to how smart they are.
    That catches a fair number of them.

    Ok... Let's say Labour build a lot of houses so that people can get into homes. What happens to the value of all the existing homes? It drops right? Way to piss off all your home-owning voters! These houses reduce demand in the short term but in time, demand will increase again. Do they build more? What happens to first home buyer 100,001? They can't get a house at cost, so they end up paying market rates again. Labour are economic morons and just trying to buy votes. If you want housing to be more affordable, make land more accessible, reduce council costs and stop adding in more and more regulation!
