When is our "leader gonna harden up"?

Kenneth from Northcote Point

So, once again we go into a lower level of "lockdown"?? I hate the term "lockdown"...it sounds like a communist word...however, when is our public going to get angry and start making our "government" harden up? I don't think fines work....it's quite easy... feel sick, stay at home...

Are you struggling to find a rental or buy a home in Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hello everyone,

I was hoping to get in contact with someone from the Māori, Pasifika and Indian community who have either struggled to find a rental or buy a home.

The housing crisis has affected all three groups particularly badly, so if there's anyone who comes from these groups who is willing to talk please drop me a message: ged.cann@stuff.co.nz
