You may remember I was involved in a car crash back in April. Tomorrow I'm likely to need to go to court to testify against the young man who caused the crash.
To be honest, on one hand I hope I'm not required (the Police said they may have enough witnesses). Courts are such shaming places and the guy was really young — we've all done stupid stuff at his age.
"Labour's housing spokeswoman, Annette King, said [high value Housing NZ] homes should be sold." reported The Herald on Friday.
She continued, "A place that's worth $1.3 million could provide three houses. I have no problem with state house tenants being rehoused into another house, a suitable house, if it's going to enable more families to be housed."
I never thought I'd hear a Labour politician put money above the respect and dignity of a Housing NZ tenant. But, it seems, even the left now can't see past dollar signs to recognise that a house – even one owned by the Government – is more than just a house.
