On the weekend David Cunliffe criticised the Government’s handling of housing issues. He said that in his own electorate of New Lynn housing is the number one electorate issue facing people, and that there are not enough affordable homes. He also expressed concern at the impact housing affordability would have on his kids’ ability to house themselves. The video is here and is worth watching.
Yesterday John Key challenged Cunliffe to a debate. According to TVNZ Key said:
David Cunliffe wants to have a bit of chat on nationwide TV about it, more than happy to do so, we can call it the first debate, more than happy to do so,” says Mr Key.
Cunliffe quickly accepted the challenge.
Today it is another story. Stuff is reporting:
Prime Minister John Key is refusing to debate housing policy with Labour leader David Cunliffe until the election campaign proper after yesterday signalling he was happy to have a head-to-head clash.
What is that word starting with “C” and ending with “hicken”?
