As people will know Labour has attacked National’s decision to let state house tenants buy the homes they live in. Well some clever sod at National found a report from 19
986 when the then Labour Minister of Housing proudly announced exactly the same policy, and raved on about how wonderful it will be.
Who was the Minister of Housing then? Our own Phil Goff. So enjoy the video of Phil Heatley having fun with Goff in the House.
It does reinforce the point I made last week about Goff being an enigma. I’d like to know what he really thinks about allowing state house tenants to buy their own homes. Does he really think what he announced in 1986 was a mistake?Tags: housing, Phil Goff, Phil Heatley
