Shouldn't they find husbands first?

The NZ Herald has a stupid article asking a couple of “too fussy to get a bloke” chicks (either that or they are dud roots) about home ownership.

What neither Jacinda or Nikki point out is our parents generation would almost certainly be married by 30, and that means two incomes funding one mortgage. Marriage also has the effect of stopping people from wanting to waste lots of money at the boozer, travelling and generally not being fiscally conservative in a personal sense.

This blog is not advocating marriage by any means (I mean seriously? Who wants a mother in law?) but it is advocating the truth being told about why younger people are not saving the money to buy houses.

Ladies, if you want a house, get a husband first.

Alternatively in Jacinda’s case she could write to Granny for a loan.

They bang on about housing affordability but that is always going to be relative, if neither of them can afford a house when supping elbows deep in the public trough then no one can. My mate who has about 30 houses reckons that they are plenty affordable, he has 30 after all so they must be affordable.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
