Labour Party leader Phil Goff - broken promises

Share |
In the NZ Herald today, the Leader of the Labour Party Phil Goff asks in the parliament whether the new budget to be delivered today by Bill English will break any election promises.
I ask "Is that a good or fair question"? Or just cynical attempt to smear a politician.
I think the latter when you consider that:
1. Phil Goff is not dealing with the budget deficit
2. Phil Goff is not outlining an alternative
3. Parties ought not be tied to a political policy merely because it was advanced in the past. After all, things change, and policy has to change with it. Whether they made a mistake, or external factors changed, you celebrate responsiveness, and deal with the question of whether it is good policy 'as it stands'. Of course it would be confidence building for a party to convey some coherent fundamental ideas; but given there is little integrity in politics (given their statutory powers), you can't expect that under the current system.

This is why we have to change the system, and why Phil Goff is not good for NZ politics. John Key is little better because he is ultimately a 'centerist', unprincipled middleman with no integrity, who offers no break from the past. Keep looking NZ!

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
