You mean so you can google-search cherry-pick them?
I live here, idiot. Every site I google has a different 'statistic' ffs, but the gist of it is a population increase of about 10 percent over the last 4 years. It's not rocket science to see the accumulative effect, if a rate of increase like that goes on for an extended time. That's equivalent to over 5 million in England, a much older country with an infrastructure that has grown with the population.
There were negligible homeless here less than a decade ago, and now it's in the tens of thousands (all locals). I think that speaks for itself. That's because we were stuck with a self-serving, traitorous, 'neo-liberal' fucktard of a Govt. for what seemed like an eternity. Don't ask me why because I have no clue, but it certainly got the immigrant vote. People are crying about it now though, after being seduced by a smiling cancer cell of a yankcocksucker who had some moronic notion that we would morph into a bustling metropolis to rival New York
Ever heard the story of the golden goose?
Arguing with an agenda-driven PCturd is as futile and pointless as arguing with a creatard.
So Kiwi then and an Aucklander to boot? Must be hard with all those Brits and Aussies over there.
You're certainly between a rock and a hard place then as NZ had a zero-population growth rate on a slow decline and your brightest youth were leaving in droves(still are from the looks of it but it looks like a lot of your expats are returning), so how were you going to afford to run and provide the pensions, welfare benfits, healthcare, etc that an aging population would require. What would you suggest? Cut immigration and encourage your citizens to breed faster? Still won't solve your brain-drain of youth going elsewhere for better opportunities. What would you propose?
With regarding to your housing issues, build new towns and cities and the infrastructure needed to connect and support them, that'll put your builders back to work but from the sounds of it you'll have to reform your land policies. How would you solve this issue?
Personally, I find humour in the irony of the descendants of mass immigration complaining about the effects of mass immigration given in your history you pretty much doubled the population every one or two years over forty years.
Cherry-picking google stats then, as predicted. You are such an ass. I haven't heard about a 'brain drain' since the 80s. It's only a political term anyway. Where is the scientific evidence that only intelligent people left, while the remaining population were all idiots? The excuses at the moment are 'not enough builders' and various supposedly 'low-skilled' jobs that apparently we are 'too lazy' to do. Yeah right. I have already gone over that with you. Why don't you try reading? It's just a way of keeping wages down and pandering to Big Business interests. Nothing to do with an 'ageing population' (another political scare-tactic). What's wrong with that anyway? Bring in euthanasia then.
You can't have it both ways. Why are people flocking to live here? Because it has a relatively small population which is why it stayed 'relatively' unspoiled? Because they want to take advantage of all the nice things they don't have in their own countries?
Who ordained that people are obliged to open their doors and home to those who have made their own homes into overpopulated, polluted shit-holes? Fuck them. If you can order me to build whole towns for them (where?), then tell them to clean up their own shit-holes and stay in them. Imagine there is one nice, clean, well-maintained house on a street while all the rest are dirty dumps. Should the person with the nice house be obliged to open their door to the whole street? How long would their home last? I'm not obliged to make a 'better life' for them and their badly-behaved brats.
Btw, you are razor sharp aren't you?
PE. I wouldn't live in little ShangCutta if you paid me.
And who is going to pay for the pensions of all those extra people? It's not as if they are all brilliant geniuses. Oldie pensions have gobbled up the biggest chunk of the welfare budget (by far) for decades. Rich old cunts even get it, no questions asked. It would seem that it needs some 'stream-lining' anyway. The 'Libertarian' fucks who were in power were so stupid that they were letting job immigrants bring their elderly parents with them and allowing them to go on the pension here. Wow. They must think we are the biggest suckers on the planet (and they would be right).
