The dental nurse got a free ride yesterday when responding to the moves outlined by English on "housing affordability.
Her Idiotic response was that "we have built upmarket four bedroom houses" in recent years as people moved to enjoy some rewards of hard work, homes that are mostly unaffordable for first home buyers.

They might not be what or where the first home buyers wanted but they were a start
