Chch family have “nowhere to go” with dozens of rental properties to choose from

Oh how I love these MSM hit pieces trying to show up how the nasty government doesn’t care about people.  It is always a case of victim mentality and my most “favourite” word of all: entitlement.

Anna Turner continues her ridiculous crusade at at The Press.  She has another try at making the housing situation sound dire, even though most of them should know by now that any of these sorts of attempts to pimp the poor to hit the government is going to get checked out by The Whale:


Oh, but “that’s horrible”, you say?  

Well no, not really.  Check out TradeMe right now:


Only 142 listing to choose from.  I can see the crisis for the poor, poor family.

“But hang on Whale”, I hear you say, “not all of those 142 will be affordable”.

No, no, you’re right.  But some are:


A family of 5 in a 2 bedroom home?  Why not?  What do they expect?  A palace?

And yes, that’s exactly what they expect.  Just because that nasty Housing New Zealand doesn’t have a 4 or 5 bedroom mansion, close to where they currently go to school / live / where her mum lives without transport, and so on, it is expected to deliver the lot.

And of course, they are a victim of circumstance consequences:

Anne Bovey and her partner AJ McIlroy say landlords reject them because they are both on a benefit and have a poor credit rating.

Landlords accept people on benefits all the time.  Even with bad credit ratings.  But what landlords do not want, are whiny scum with entitlement issues.  I bet you a dollar to a knob of goat poo that they turn up looking less that their best, and present themselves exactly as the burden on society that they are.

These aren’t “low income people” Anna.  These are beneficiaries that should stop making more babies, look for a job, and stop being a pain in the arse.

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.
