It is astonishing that the Herald continues on this crusade of sad faces pushing so called poverty stories. The latest is a state house tenant who is all sad face about the fact that Housing NZ won’t sell her the house she has been a tenant in for 11 years for a million dollars.
Think about that for a minute why don’t you…this person is a tenant in a state house, that ostensibly is worth a million dollars, and now, miraculously can afford to buy the house she has been paying a pepper-corn rental for…and somehow Housing NZ are the bad guys here.
A supermarket worker says she has raised $1 million to buy her state house in one of New Zealand’s most-desirable neighbourhoods – but Housing NZ is booting her out regardless.
Bella Bowden, 50, believes she was investigated by Housing NZ because her extended family came up with the cash to help her buy the small Mission Bay house she has called home for 11 years.
After she told the government housing agency she had obtained finance to buy the house, Housing NZ officials investigated her circumstances, talking to her neighbours and her boss.
Buy HER state house…nope, It is OURS. She has rented it for 11 years and now miraculously has a million bucks to buy it…she is taking the piss.
On top of that she owes back rent. Some people just have to take the piss their whole useless, pathetic lives.
She earns $400 a week and now she is supposed to be able to buy a million dollar house, even with “whanau” helping her she would be hard pressed to pay back any of it. I wouldn’t at all be surprised to find that there was some “green” finance involved.
This is a bullshit manufactured, spam journalism story.
