The immortal words of Daniel Kerrigan, patriarch in "The Castle" as a reply to the latest offer to buy his house to make way for a development.
Andrew Little still leader of the largest opposition party, god only knows why, has in conjunction with another giant of intellectual genius, Phil Twyford, launched a 'comprehensive' brainfart in response to a purported housing crisis.
A part of the supporting rhetoric has some reminiscing on the "successful" launch of the first Labour Government's "State Housing Policy" following the 1935 general election that saw Michael Joseph Savage lead a landslide to the treasury benches in the depths of the "Great Depression".
The first "state house" arrived to much publicity in 1937 almost two years after the election victory.
In times with thousands of labourers and artisans unemployed, an almost inexhaustible supply of native timber for framing and cladding, concrete for foundations and roofing, and land in abundance, that first experiment with a socialist directed economy managed to build that first house in 22 months and Fletcher Building was launched
Now today with the NZ economy running at pretty much full capacity, the Moron Party and their media enablers are promoting an impossible dream of 10 000 additional houses per annum for ten years.
No unemployed just waiting with saw and hammer, a very tight supply chain for product to build with, a decimated timber milling industry and cutting wood that needs some form of treatment before use, a commercial construction industry at high levels of activity, where oh where you freakin numpties will you suddenly mobilise the sort of drive that got Savage his first Government created affordable home in just under two years.
Then there is the total confusion in the policies of Labour and its potential support parties around immigration constraints that might make a minor dent in the manpower shortages for your fairy tale outcome.
Oh media oh media where for art thou media, apologies Bill Shakespeare.
