I have a dream, that one day all people from all nations will come out to vote for independents and give these major parties the bloody fright of their lives.
We have seen it time and time again; those that stay in power for too long lose the reality of what the world is like. They become oblivious to what is right or wrong; believing only in their own self worth.
Zealand Housing Minister Dr Nick Smith’s
reaction to another death in a state/council house was unacceptable.
Nick Smith claimed: "People dying in winter of pneumonia and other illnesses are not new."
Yet people die on the roads every year and the government spends millions on road safety.
This is the second death in a State/Council house this winter. The coroner stated that the first death there was a link between the cold living conditions in the home to death from pneumonia like symptoms.
New Zealand Housing has a duty of care like any other landlord to provide a safe environment for people to live in.
Maybe Dr Smith thinks there are not enough deaths to warrant providing basic needs.
