All the support from the wives in the leafy suburbs just evaporated

The Greens really don’t understand their own voter base.

Auckland house prices should be deliberately reduced by up to 50 percent over a period of time to make the market affordable again, Greens co-leader Metiria Turei says.

The average house price in Auckland has risen to nearly $1 million, or 10 times the median household income.

Ms Turei said the only way to reverse that was to slowly bring prices back down to three or four times the median household income.

She told Morning Report the Green Party was considering what timeframe would work without crashing the market and hurting people who already owned homes.

“The only way to prevent a bust, and to protect families in the short and long term is to lay out a comprehensive plan, which means using every comprehensive tool that we’ve got so that we can slowly bring down house prices so that they’re reasonable.”

The Auckland Council’s chief economist had suggested bringing prices down to five times the median household income by 2030, she said.

How else do the Greens think those expensive SUV shopping carts in the leafy suburbs got paid for?

It economic sabotage really…imagine being upside down on your 800k mortgage! 

It is also a good sign that Labour and the Greens are indistinguishable – Andrew Little wants exactly the same thing….  oh wait

Labour leader Andrew Little said Ms Turei’s declaration that Auckland house prices should be deliberately reduced was irresponsible.

There was no way a Labour-led government would consider the idea, he said.


Any politician that wants to destroy people’s equity either doesn’t understand, or they simply don’t care.  Whatever it takes to ruin the rich pricks and make them destitute and homeless is fine with the Greens.

Shows how  stupid Turei is.  She has no idea what she’s talking about.

Watch the Greens’ support plummet and drag Labour’s with it.   They will have to tear up the MOU to save Labour from going out the back door with them.

How can you work with morons like that?
