Housing Minister Phil Twyford’s Waterloo: Will KiwiBuild cost him?
When you look at that headline, ask yourself, “Cost Him?” What about the long suffering taxpayer.
Kiwibuild has become symbolic of Liabour’s credibility when it comes to deliver on it’s pre election promises.
Back in 2016, the NZ Herald political editor wrote that Phil Twyford’s own political career followed a parallel trajectory to the Auckland housing market.
As house prices soared, so did Twyford’s political stocks as Liabour’s housing spokesman in Opposition.
That housing market has now soured, and so too have Twyford’s stocks as he battles to deliver what Liabour promised before the last election.
Only yesterday we saw 7 unsold houses in Canterbury. Why do they remain unsold in our second biggest city?
I am sure he could be sent to a liabour sex camp for rest and recalibration.
