Can you believe the Government’s plan to sell off our state houses? Write to Bill English and tell him what you think byclicking here.

In a few hours, MPs will be breaking up for the summer. But during the holiday, the Government will be pushing forward with their plans to sell off thousands of our state houses.

The Minister leading the sell-off is Bill English. Let’s make sure the last thing he thinks about before leaving his office today is the thousands of us who are against his plans to make the country’s housing crisis worse.

Will you take two minutes right now to send Bill English an email and let him know what you think of his state housing sell-off?

We’ve made it super easy to do. Just write your name, email address and message, and we’ll make sure it gets to him. It really will only take a couple of minutes – but we have to move quickly.

Together, we can force Bill English to take into account our views as well as those of the property speculators currently lobbying him. We could even force him to abandon his plans.

    Done. But your dealing with those who’s fiscal dogma rules over social conscience,

    Even if you do not live in a state house, and are unlikely to do so, you should sign this petition — a sale of state housing will only push up rents and house prices for everyone else, as middle class baby boomer property investors snap them and force tenants to pay 70% of their income in rent to them.

  3. Bill English is Catholic. Soon he will sit in Mass and listen to the old story about a carpenter’s family forced by government edict to travel in the middle of a Palestinian winter just as their first baby is due and ended up up bunking in with the sheep and donkey. Appeal to his conscience and to his feelings as a father. Both must exist.

    Maybe Matt McCarten’s First Task on being reappointed as Chief of Staff could be to oganise a grass roots Labour led campaign against the sell off of State Houses.

    Though I suspect because of his and Andrew’s union backgrounds, Matt’s first task will be to organise a campaign to challenge the recently passed anti-worker legislation around the right to smoko breaks and employer cancellation of negotiations.

    So many campaigns to chose from!
