The NZ Herald has gone all soft and pappy today, telling readers if they want a state house or “social housing” with a view, forget it.
Beautiful views are banned in a draft new Government policy, the Herald bleats. Double garages and decks are out, too.
The tone is thoroughly disapproving.
But the draft policy makes a lot of sense to Alf. Anything contrary would be a daft policy.
If a property has a beautiful view, the buggers who live in it should pay for it. Not taxpayers.
It sounds like housing officials have the good sense to agree.
