I think I'll be voting Labour/Green to change the Government + I like the idea of mixing it up a bit.

Richard Moore: Mismanaged NZ is no paradise

By Richard Moore

After moving to New Zealand 12 years ago I heard a lot from locals about what a great place it was to raise kids.
 
But, as I took my children to school, I saw huge numbers of kids heading to class without shoes - in the middle of winter.
 
That was a shock. Couldn't their parents afford shoes, I wondered?
 
To add to the picture many of the children didn't have raincoats, others didn't even have jumpers.
 
I didn't think about it then, but now I would expect many of the kids didn't have lunches and hadn't had food for breakfast.
 
Nowadays when people say to me that New Zealand is the best country in the world to raise children I ask them why they think that?
 
They cannot say exactly why, I guess most just parrot the myth of this paradise for children.


Then I ask them if this is the best place to raise kids - why are there more than 270,000 children living in poverty right now?
 
Ummm.
 
Why do so many children go to school without being fed?
 
Ummm.


Why does a Kiwi kid die about every five weeks at the hands of parents or caregivers?
 
Ummm.
 
Is it true police are called to domestic violence incidents every seven minutes?
 
Ummm.
 
And can a United Nations' report possibly be true when it states that one in four NZ girls are sexually assaulted before they are 15?
 
Ummm.
 
That doesn't sound like a child paradise to me.
 
Any one of those issues should have this country hanging its head in shame, let alone all of them.
 
But most Kiwis will avert their eyes from the issues as they are too unpleasant to deal with.
 
Much of the blame for the above things can be laid at the feet of successive governments that, for decades, have shied away from really tackling the problems.
 
Into the too hard basket they go and while they can be ignored - for a while - eventually the lid comes off to reveal the festering mess inside.
 
And this is where New Zealand is at over housing.
 
The property-buying frenzy that has sent the Auckland median house price rocketing towards $1 million has made many folk very rich and ruined the lives of countless others.
 
If I were in the Government I'd be truly ashamed of what has happened in that city where working families cannot afford rents.
 
In Auckland's central suburbs rent is, on average, just under $600 a week.
 
On the North Shore you are looking at just under $570 per week.
 
Even in South Auckland the average rent is $450.
 
A TV3 investigation the other month found families in Auckland were hiring out garages for $400 a week.
 
When the minimum wage is $620 a week, before paying $120 tax, even Blind Pew can see there is a crisis.
 
We in the Bay of Plenty are riding along on the jet-trail of the Auckland market, which is good for those of us with houses.
 
Values seem to be heading for the stratosphere with demand red-hot and the cost of renting a place skyrocketing.
 
Median rents for three-bedroom homes in Bethlehem/Otumoetai are now $420 a week, according to Tenancy Services. In Papamoa it's $450. Greerton $390.
 
Take $390 off your after-tax minimum wage and... well you can do the maths.
 
Merivale School principal Jan Tinetti , speaking as part of the Bay of Plenty Times' special series on the hidden homeless, says one in 10 of her families are homeless or in temporary accommodation.
 
Some of the homeless are living in cars at the moment.
 
Picture yourself in your car. Imagine how cold you would be overnight in winter. Think of how vulnerable you would feel in that situation.
 
And many of these people are working.
 
They work and yet cannot get, or afford, a house.
 
How disgraceful is that?
 
In fact, it isn't disgraceful - it is an outrage and New Zealand needs to pull its head out of the sand and have a good long look at itself.
 
The housing crisis is, in my opinion, the No1 issue facing this country and it has been obvious for a long time.
 
When the penny finally dropped on how dire things were looking, the Government blamed others for the problem.
 
Now the situation is probably irredeemable.
 
Laissez-faire is one thing, in my opinion, negligence is quite another.

the biggest problem with this country is far too many people having no thought about planning for their future then expecting everyone else to provide for and look after them.

If the welfare budget was able to spent on those who had fallen on hard times despite their efforts to help themselves there would not be any crisis.

a classic example of people who expect the taxpayer to subsidise them.
http://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/news/81162744/huntly-mums-plea-to-stay-in-her-state-home

they have a 4 bedroomed home and a combined income of $60,000, they pay $203 per week rent but yet they have no savings .

Actually $60, 000 isnt that much, and they have improved their circumstances since rearing their five children and still looking out for them, that is a reality; many families are taking in extra family members so that everyone can get by. Low income earners are struggling to pay market rents and therefore end up living 10 to a house, no parent is going to turn their children out on the street, that woman has also raised whangai children. I had a sister in law who was just like that, she'd take in anyone that needed a place to stay and guess what it was a state house so they could probably afford the extra mouths to feed. Not everyione thinks in 'single' terms, culturally Maori and Pacific Islanders are comfortable with 'the village to raise a child' philosophy and will share whatever they have to help other extended family out. Some pakeha families aren't so generous but at the end of the day they can say they have savings in the bank or can afford that new car - which is great. But that doesn't mean that everyone plays to the sound of the same drum, far from it. I absolutely get where that woman is coming from.

we have never earned anywhere near that, if we had $60,000 between us we'd be wealthy.

Anyone who will slow immigration.
Anyone who will close tax loopholes.
Anyone who will introduce capital gains taxes.
Anyone who will disallow foreigners buying real estate.
Anyone who doesn't give tax breaks to corporations while expecting the taxpayer to pick up the bill.

Hmph if banks and corporations  were taxed like the average person is, no one else would need to pay taxes at all.

As for capital gains ..ffs, that's crabs in the bottom of the bucket trying to pull back those trying to claw their way out of the s**t in the bottom. Instead of doing the same.



You'd close the last high risk and bloody hard work way but possible way out of lower middle class would you?  Gee think ahead a little will you?

Hardly. A capital gains tax is just a gain on a capital gain. Tax em.
