Newstalk ZB has covered my response and my opponents to the government’s $1 billion housing infrastructure announcement.
We’re all pretty positive, because who doesn’t like free money right? (Do I hear taxpayers in other parts of New Zealand grumbling…)
We don’t yet know the detail of the strings attached, but I make the point we wouldn’t need this government “bailout” if Len Brown had been doing a more effective job getting council working better.
