Another personal e-mail to me from Labour

I must give credit where credit is due. Labour is determined to try to reach the missing million, of which I assume I must be one. I received this delightful e-mail, personally addressed to me, yesterday. It brings the total number of e-mails I have received from Labour in the last two months to five. I have had one wanting me to vote on a tea towel design, one telling me which tea towel won, two from Andrew Little and finally this one from Phil Twyford. Mr Twyford wanted me to take part in a survey, so I dutifully did.

Perhaps some of our readers would like to help him out also? I am sure he wants to know what we, the missing million, really think about their campaign for affordable homes. I suspect though, judging by the questions asked, that the motivation is actually something quite different.


Over the next few weeks, we’re stepping up our campaign for more affordable and healthy homes.

Everyone knows someone affected by the housing crisis. But National are so out of touch that just last week National Minister Simon Bridges denied on the radio that there was a housing crisis. Instead of fixing the problem, they’re siding with offshore property speculators and looking after the few at the very top.

We need to keep shining the spotlight on this crisis. One of the best ways we can do that is by learning more about the issues affecting people like you.

Juana, will you share your story and take our short survey about housing in New Zealand?

Labour backs the Kiwi dream of home ownership and by sharing your story, you’ll help us highlight housing problems in New Zealand and play a key role in developing solutions to the crisis.
