    From the Sunday Star Times..08/10/08

    “”THEY TIED the knot yesterday and now young Aucklanders Jason and Jemima Steel are about to become one of the first couples to buy a house under the government’s new shared equity pilot scheme.

    Launched in July, the scheme is designed to help modest-income earners into their first home.

    It targets areas where housing prices are highest – Auckland, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch and Queenstown.

    Participants must have a 5% deposit but the government provides up to 30% of the home’s value as an interest-free loan which is repaid when the house sells.

    Around 150 people have applied for the scheme but just five, including the Steels, have got to the point of buying a house.”””

    Another Labour led incentive to help get young married couples into their 1st homes. Wonder if this policy will stay, after November..:roll:

    I hope not it failed in Britain, a return to State loans would be better, why anyone would want to go down a shared equity scheme is beyond me, we had the best with State loans.

    Have you heard the new policy put out by Gordon Brown in Britian, lemin? He plans to nationalise all their banking facilities, in order to overcome their failing economy, (due to the US meltdown), and to bring them into line with other European nations such as Germany and Poland.

    Gidday

    Well bugger me dead.

    Vixie, you poor twisted little girl. It is obvious that you have far too much time on your hands and you are far too simplictic. You have not only wasted time reading helens propagana but it looks like you actually believe it. You poor girl.

    It was that anti nuclear legistlation that she got the peace crap for and it was that legislation that brought New Zealands only terrorist attack to our shores.

    And if you think that I was referring to the tabbaco legislation, you are truely deluded. Don’t you even know what immoral means, I was reffering to 850,000 people who signed the partition against the poof promoting bill.

    And is that viaduct you are talking about the one that was stopped in it’s tracks way back, by helens party, and that the unfinished bloody pillars were still poking out the ground in Auckland the last time I drove through? Was it not stopped by her then she claims the great honour of announcing that it will be built just weeks before the election. Bloody good one that Eh!

    And you mentioned education, it was her mob that destroyed our education system with what they called tommorrows schools or something like that.

    And then the rural sector. What a bloody laugh that one is. It was her mob that destroyed our rural sector, started the greatest depopulation of our countryside ever. Thousands of farmers were sent to the wall, many commited suicide because of their policies. So to talk about rural assistance is just a cruel joke.

    And on your last point, Lemin is dead right.

    Please don’t just load this sight up with repeated propaganda from that woman.

    Considering I started this thread Jack, I think I’m entitled to add what I think others might like to read and have an opinion on. It’s all based on published sources. If you don’t wish to read what I’ve posted, don’t visit this thread or make any comment on it. Make one up of your own. It’s simple really….

    Hey, You could call it “That Evil Woman”, or “Helen’s Traitorous Years”, or how about “Clark and her Caravan of Carnivours”, or heres another suggestion, the “Lets beat up on Helen Clark” thread. 😆 It won’t bother me none, be assured of that. 😆 Maybe this one is more to your taste, what about a “Call me angry, but I hate Helen Clark” discussion. 🙄 Lotta people would like that one, I’m sure. 😉

    Hey Vixie.

    You mentioned the Auckland road works, and the Viaduct, but you failed to mention the cost. AUCKLANDERS will be paying for it in a petrol tax to the tune of, from memory, 11 cents per litre, starting as of next year. REGARDLESS of the price of petrol.

    That is from the Labour spokesperson on roads either Monday or Tuesday. I wonder how many Aucklanders know that.:roll:

    😀

    Vixie again.

    In post No.4 where you rubbish ole Jack and JK’s intended policies (tax cuts were not announced then)….maybe we should balance the books up a little here….

    Here are some of your words regarding Nationals policies….”Unworkable and somewhat irrelevant policies, Borrow for tax cuts, Large debt” and so it continues, but thats enough.

    When the books were opened on Monday it was revealed there was a deficit close to 6 billion and that was not taking into account the current melt-down of the American financial system. Here is a press release from Treasury on the 7th October.

    Treasury’s pre-election report shows New Zealand is set to record a $30 billion deficit over the next 5 years. The report blames the deteriorating economy and reduced revenue forecasts. The figures do not encompass the turmoil on global markets of the past 5 weeks, which includes US and European countries formulating rescue packages for the financial sector.

    There is not a lot of surprise that the cupboard is bare, as New Zaeland has been in a recession for two quarters and will probably be in one for the September quarter….this has been under Clark and Cullen. Maybe it’s time for you to analyse a few things love.

    And I probably think Jubilant John, and his knowing of the nations current financial situation, then his party’s ‘ease-back’ on some of Nationals policies, and in my opinion responsible, are beneficial for the country as a whole.

    And if my perception is correct the ole fella Jack’s certainly no JK man either. 🙄

    😀

    For all we know, all present Key plans could be rejigged if National wins the election. Once a party is “in” it’s got pretty much carte blanche (apart from a lot of shrieking by the opposition) for the next 3 years.
    Talking of coffers being left empty, I wonder if anyone remembers when Muldoon was outgoing prime minister, and he said words to the effect of (either on radio or TV) “there’s no money — I’ve spent it all.”
    I am still undecided about my vote. At my place, it’s a “house divided” as far as politics go — so I suppose on election day we’ll end up cancelling each other out! 😳
    Anyone else “divided” with their nearest & dearest on these questions? 😉
