No, I’m not talking about National’s tax cuts, which would hit the poorest Kiwis in the pocket – John Key doesn’t seem to be content at just that. We have received an exclusive audio recording of Mr Key’s performance at the Helensville debate on Monday.
When housing was an all-important issue earlier this year Mr Key told us he supported the Hobsonville development, despite previously calling it ‘economic vandalism’. But now state house grown John Key has turned his back on the poorest, and most vulnerable in society, in order to satisfy his wealthy upper-middle class Helensville electors. Here’s what Mr Key said:
“I don’t intend to let them turn Helensville into a guinea pig subdivision If we become the government in 33 days time, we are stopping building the state houses there” (listen here)
Putting a roof over a poor family’s head isn’t valuable enough for Mr Key and the wealthy of Helensville. It’s disturbing and makes you wonder: how far will Mr Key go in kicking poor Kiwis in the guts? He’s cut down Hobsonville, he’s cut down KiwiSaver, he’s cut down the working person’s tax cut. What’s next?
