Housing NZ failure
When he has nothing in particular to do he tends to be having a shot at someone or other.
For the record, I have not since 2007 been part of any entity involved in the promotion of liquor sales.
Prior to that, I only ever promoted alcohol consumption in moderation.
In respect of gaming, yes I have been a trustee of a local gaming foundation for quite a few years. However, while that foundation has never had gaming sites in eastern Porirua, it has distributed several millions of dollars to worthy community causes in that area.
True to form, Don never seems to let the facts get in the road of a good story.
It will be heartbreaking to see a block of units go up for sale in Robert St. Where will people who live there go?
They need a rent that they can cope with.
The Housing New Zealand policy sends the wrong message to people.
The message should be to stay in a stable situation.
Temporary accommodation is like putting a patch on something. It’s not a long-term solution. National seems to be running a housing lolly scramble and is creating a mess for tomorrow.
What I think National should do is fix the homes and try to provide a good housing service, as was the original intention with state housing.
I do hope people protest the policy of selling off state houses. Housing New Zealand is failing the community.
