    Awesome tool!

    Share the link around people; it’s bracing.

    • Enough is Enough 1.1

      It is an interesting tool but…

      people at my office have actually woo hooed it when it tells them their Hamilton properties have risen by so much. Everything after that is irrelevant as they think they are rich.

  2. BM 2

    Didn’t realise Labour considers renting such an evil

    • nom 2.1

      I missed the bit where Labour says that renting is considered an evil, where was that?

      • BM 2.1.1

        This seems to have been designed to be a a map of misery and woe.

        If you enter an area where prices haven’t really risen greatly, labour has decided that high percentages of people renting in certain parts of that area is a bad thing and tries to use that statistic to emphasise the woe.

        • leftie 2.1.1.1

          Designed to be a map of facts that you don’t like, you mean BM. For many, reality is misery and woe.

          • Chuck 2.1.1.1.1

            “Designed to be a map of facts that you don’t like, you mean BM. For many, reality is misery and woe.”

            Of course this was the desired outcome for Labour to project “misery and woe”.

            • leftie 2.1.1.1.1.1

              But Labour don’t need to “project misery and woe” Chuck, when many people are living it under key and his Nats. Nothing wrong in putting the stats out there in the public’s arena, Liars and fabricators, the National government, won’t.

      • leftie 2.1.2

        Labour didn’t say it Nom.

    • AB 2.2

      Nope. But owning rentals and getting unearned income through untaxed capital gain while parasatising the livelihoods of your fellow citizens?

      • Chuck 2.2.1

        Unearned income is not un-taxed capital gain AB…look it up.

        I would love to see your tax return! assuming you are self employed…

        “while parasatising the livelihoods of your fellow citizens?” There is always a bad apple…but in most case’s mum and dad rental owners are decent and upstanding citizens that provide a valuable service to follow kiwi’s…its people like you AB that we need to be wary of (preconceived ideas of fellow citizens).

        • One Anonymous Bloke 2.2.1.1

          Yes, we need to be wary of prejudice in all its forms Chuck. How refreshing that you can still pay lip service to this principle, despite shitting on it every time you vote.

        • DH 2.2.1.2

          I’d be interesting in knowing about this alleged ‘valuable service’ that rental owners are providing. Can anyone tell me what it is?

          • b waghorn 2.2.1.2.1

            The guy who rents our place isn’t at the point where he and his wife can buy a house (i know because i’ve offered him ours if he wants) and that’s in a town where$150 k will get you a nice house.

        • millsy 2.2.1.3

          One could so equally acknwoledge the low income earners and beneficiaries who are paying out 60-90% of their income each week to provide for the gold plated r retirements of these mum and dad rental owners. Not too sure what kind of retirement they will get though.

      • Colonial Viper 2.2.2

        Nope. But owning rentals and getting unearned income through untaxed capital gain while parasatising the livelihoods of your fellow citizens?

        How many Labour MPs own rentals and commercial property?

        • leftie 2.2.2.1

          How many National MPs own rentals and commercial property?

          • mosa 2.2.2.1.1

            And shares in Fletcher construction, Sky city, local property developers, Warner Brothers………….etc

            • leftie 2.2.2.1.1.1

              And Mosa, lets not forget David Carter’s brother Philip, who owns Carter Group that enjoys multi million dollar government contracts from the National government.

        • Peter Swift 2.2.2.2

          How many labour mps publicly opposed a cgt on investment properties in 2014?

          • leftie 2.2.2.2.1

            None. CGT was one of Labour’s campaign polices. Funny how the public cried out for that AFTER the election, particularly when msm started releasing articles relating to the housing crisis, that they had been sitting on throughout the election.

  3. Chuck 3

    Went onto the website, entered my full address and they had me in a different part of Auckland…not a good start!

    Anyhow it seems 66% are home owners in my suburb…

    It will appeal to the faithful I guess. For others they will see how much they have gained in the value of their house! if they did not already know…

    • BM 3.1

      I wonder if you’ll receive some Labour brochure in the near future.

      • Chuck 3.1.1

        No doubt I will!! Labour will be harvesting data from anyone that clicks on and enters details.

        • Peter Swift 3.1.1.1

          Faux concern without any evidence proving NZ labour will data harvest participants details.
          And at the end of the presentation there is a tick box if you sign the petition…

          “Yes! Keep me updated with this and Labour’s other campaigns.

          If you sign the petition, we also collect your address to help us tailor our communications to you, based on your location.”

          If you were that worried about it you would have used your neighbours name and address instead of your own.

          • leftie 3.1.1.1.1

            …or he wouldn’t have bothered to use it at all.

          • Chuck 3.1.1.1.2

            “If you were that worried about it you would have used your neighbours name and address instead of your own.”

            I’m not worried about it Peter Swift.

        • leftie 3.1.1.2

          Chuck, didn’t you read it where it clearly states: “If you sign the petition, we also collect your address to help us tailor our communications to you, based on your location.”

    • leftie 3.2

      Chuck, if Labour’s interactive map had you in a different part of Auckland, then how do you know 66% are home owners in your suburb?

      • Chuck 3.2.1

        I had to put in a different address from down the road to get to my actual suburb.

        • leftie 3.2.1.1

          Yeah, sure Chuck. Your pants are on fire. So Labour’s inactive map does work, like those who have used it know it does, and is that an admission you did exactly what Peter Swift said? that you used your neighbours address, so you were worried after all.

          • Chuck 3.2.1.1.1

            I had a play with it an hour ago, you can put in any address (real or not) and it still spits out data…me thinks Labour went for the cheap version!

            “and is that an admission you did exactly what Peter Swift said? that you used your neighbours address, so you were worried after all.”

            No, you asked a sensible question of how did I know the ownership rate in my suburb. Of which I told you how…after having a suburb 30 mins away from mine, come up under my first search.

    • Sigh 3.3

      You probably entered your address incorrectly.

  4. leftie 4

    Labour’s interactive map is excellent, and very informative.

  5. infused 5

    Hasn’t risen enough tbh.

  6. righty right 6

    Has labour got a permit to release this information or is this economic vandalism
    labour is trying to destroy future prosperity of investors and risk takers LABOUR ARE EVIL evil. labour don’t seem to understand that national lies to keep NZ from turning to Greece. JOHN KEY for ever
