Yale University has released a list of developed countries ranked on the number of homeless people per capita – which has New Zealand at the top, followed by the Czech Republic and Australia.

Well congratulations Nat government/corporation, you’ve now put us on another dubious ‘honour’ list. Most homeless? Two homeless gentlemen recently dying in the winter cold even. Well done John Key. Well done Bill English. You do us proud. What next are we going to excel in? Who next can you simply kick to the curb with your boot that’s looking increasingly fascist these days? Twenty billion to weapons and war, and only one to housing? Whilst you land bank our state homes, 42K people sleep in tents, garages and cars. Your monetary priorities say it all. You’ve ushered in neo-liberalism on steroids. You’ve trashed not only the people but the environment as well. And what use is any economy with neither of those?

    GIVE THE REST OF THE WORLD TIME, AND THE REST OF US WILL BE JOINING YOU; UNLESS THE SPIRITS OF WICKEDNESS BE CUT SHORT.

    • We have an election here in September. This epidemic of homelessness is a total anathema to all New Zealanders – even very conservative ones who normally vote National.

  2. Well, the U.S. can’t be too far behind. As horrible as this is, it will only get worse because governments are pouring taxpayer money into their militaries to the detriment of all else, namely social programs that are supposed to protect people from bad shit happening to them, as in homelessness.

    If anyone is still unsure as to what their government thinks of them, this should be an eye opener.

  3. What I find really ironic, Shelby, is that the idea of homeless kids is a total anathema here in New Zealand. Which means the current National government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars housing families in motels. It’s such an incredible waste of money. Historically New Zealand has had a very strong public housing program. Then when National took office 9 years ago, they began selling off oodles of state housing – and were totally surprised when families with kids began living in their cars and under bridges.

      SAME WAY IN THE USA. HOMELESSNESS HAS INDEED BECOME A CONTAGIOUS DISEASE. GOVERNMENT AND SOCIETIES SEEM TO BE THE ONES THAT SPREAD THE VIRUS AND BACTERIA. ONCE YOU ARE OUT IN THE STREETS, ETC…IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO RECOVER. WE NEED A DRUG AGAINST GOVERNMENT AND THE ELITE. WE ALSO NEED PEOPLE, WHEN THEY DO BECOME EMPLOYED AND BECOME PROMOTED NOT TO LET THE JOB GO TO THEIR HEADS. SUPERVISORS AND MANAGERS CAN MAKE LIFE MISERABLE FOR PEOPLE WHICH CAN CAUSE HOMELESSNESS. EVERY SINGLE SOUL ON THIS PLANET NEEDS TO KNOW AND COME TO GRIPS WITH THAT THEIR JOBS ARE TEMPORARY AT BEST, AND THERE SHALL COME A DAY, WHEN EACH SOUL SHALL HAVE TO TAKE A RIDE INTO THE SUNSET.
