Yet another KiwiBuild development in central Wellington has stalled, leaving first home buyers ruing the day they signed up for the beleaguered scheme.

They should complain to the Government about the dodgy house promoter that takes the money and doesn’t deliver.
Oh wait, the Government is the dodgy promoter!
