Good old Paddy Gower turns savage on Nick Smith:
In November 2008, the year National came to power – the average house in Auckland was $501,939.
When Nick Smith took over as Housing Minister in January 2013 – it was $607,439.
And now it $1,013,632.
I won’t muck around here, because New Zealanders aren’t thick – there’s no real need for political analysis.
Kiwis know what a million bucks means – it’s a lot of cash.
A million dollars is a sad symbol.
It is a stain on this Government’s housing record.
It is an indictment – a million dollar indictment.
How can Key stand by a minister who does nothing but embarrass himself?
