Not in my back yard. Alright, maybe in my back yard but only if the state isn’t involved.

UPDATE: No Right Turn has an interesting post on Key’s privatisation plans.

    Key opens his mouth policy comes out fuck up ensues
    When will English roll him ?

  2. When will a political party be “brave” enough to touch the “third Rail” of NZ politics and abolish the tax advantages of property investments? It’s the only way to make house affordable. Or, of course make all mortgage payments and rent payments tax deductible, why should landlords get all the fun?

    Why should everyone be proping up the poor?

    So the rich can learn to spell and reason, perhaps?

    At least you admit the poor are propping up the poor, interesting admission to say the least…

    Tell you what buddy, you might get a thrill out of being wealthy and being able to pick your way through the homeless on the streets when you leave your gated “secure” community, but to most people a good society is one where the greatest number of people are happy, maximising utility and all that?

    Or was that just a dumb troll attempt?

    Private developers can do it best; private developers know what people want> A McMansion with a 4 car garage, gas heating and 4 sq meters of lawn.
