At nine o’clock this morning, the Build NZ conference and trade show kicks off at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland.
It’s all about KiwiBuild – the who, what, where, when, why and how of KiwiBuild. …
It was to kick off with the man in the middle – KiwiBuild Minister Phil Twyford – but he has, astonishingly, pulled the middle finger to the entire industry and pulled out at the last minute.
The industry wants to know, deserves to know, what, how and when his shambles of a policy will be euthanized or scaled back.
But they want the truth.
They don’t want your messenger, junior minister Jenny Salesa – they want you, Phil.
But Phil has decided to stay in Wellington and do a housing announcement on Housing First. What an insult to this industry. KiwiBuild not in the race anymore.
The Government has to deliver 859 more affordable houses in the next six days. That is 143 a day or one every ten minutes.
