National has *never* been the Trumpist party you are looking for. And they have been more centre right since Key was PM. Personally, I think that is good. You will disagree

Another region under big pressure because of government policy decisions. Taranaki, Southland and now the West Coast. Strange given all the noise about backing the provinces.

Fairly sure we were talking about the proposed tenancy overhaul - and the impacts on rentals?

Ha. I did a platter. I mixed it up even further with some smoked kingfish

Pretty sure that is what they are doing. Offloading. Too much trouble. Not sure how this helps a rental crisis?

Astonishingly good photo from the Australian bushfires - lone kookaburra looking over the devastation. Posted on FB by News Ltd; photo Adam Stevenson.

You do get that there is a shortage of houses to buy as well? When landlords think it is too hard to rent it, they sell it for people to you know, buy to live in as owners

Lol. Sure. Thanks for the vote of confidence - whoever you are and however you added me to this list

Yup. And therefore proving my point. The rental market will shrink. Whether the ones that exit are unfit landlords or just sick of the crap is probably for a court to determine, but the sum result is fewer rental properties through Labour policy

Cool. Vote someone else. And look forward to Labour again

Well, that is your choice. If all the Nats who voted NZF or something else obscure had voted for Nats, it would have been a whole different game. Don’t let that happen again

I agree. But it is the state’s obligation to supply public housing. Not private citizens. Putting barriers in the way of private landlords does this country and those who need accomodation a disservice

And, they are probably tired of providing rental accomodation in a situation that has diminishing returns for them. Lose/lose

It still stands for me. There is no other party that reflects my values as much. Do I disagree with them on stuff? Hell, yes. Euthanasia is a prime example. But if you actually want to make a difference you need to change from within. The only way is by winning the election
