Affordable Housing the Len Brown and Labour way?

Len Brown and Labour have a dream for Auckland. They call it affordable housing, and they are dumping thousands of pamphlets around Auckland at the moment, paid for by the taxpayer, outlining Labour’s policy.

Len Brown’s unitary plan proposes teeny tiny, tacky apartments around bus corridors, but miraculously the area he resides in misses out on the intensification plans.

Meanwhile in China they are proving the concept of affordable housing quite well.

A 7-square-meter flat including a bedroom, bathroom, balcony and closet is displayed at a minimalist housing exhibition at Chongqing University Wednesday. 

The flat, costing 20,000 yuan ($3,224), can house three people and was designed by 12 students from the university.

Affordable housingNice indoor/outdoor flow don’t you think?

Very nice price point, and even attracts the chicks. They guy in the loft is trying to get some cleavage but she’s a bit proper.

7 square metres for 3 people should easily solve the housing crisis in Auckland.

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.
