    "We have rights!!"

    We have the right to live the good life, even if the money we earn won't stretch that far.

    It should all be free (code-word for someone else, somewhere else, should pay for it).

    If anything goes wrong its somebody else's fault - and they should pay!

    Thats the New Zealand way.

    This is spot on... and goes FULL CIRCLE back to what we've been talking about on other threads about the HOUSING CRISIS being an EXPECTATION CRISIS

    This is going to be a tough time for NZ as they are jolted back to a level of quality of life they can afford vs. the one they expect.

    They lease cars, live in houses too expensive (so high mortgage outgoings) etc.
    At the end of the day, no matter what you earn, you are on a losing streak if you spend more than you earn.

    I actually agree with the message Deborah was trying (poorly) to get across - we need to do something about helping business' which are a month away from failure. What I don't know (maybe more education/mentoring?).
    I think you're right here about the poor and the inbetweeners...

    The rich on $200k - many spend $200k plus which is why many of them too live week to week with the inbetweeners.

    I have lived in the fast paced corporate world and seen first hand the lifestyle inflation that goes with it. I wasn't sucked in to it but the majority are...

    Default Force Majeure

    Anyone tried for an insurance claim of some sort?

    Is force majeure only a claim opt-out for insurance companies.

    I.e. Policy-holders can't use force majeure as a premium payment opt-out.

    Coronavirus: Visits by 'street mates' during lockdown sees tenant forced to move out

"But his situation does not outweigh the landlord's right to have the tenancy terminated given the significant antisocial behaviour with its potentially serious consequences that has occurred in this case."
