The blog post explains it: New Zealanders either can't or don't want to fork out for central heating systems for their homes. It is seen as a luxury item. People rubbish rubbish rubbish pooh pooh the World Health Organisation guidelines on 18 for sleeping and 20-21 for living.

The Government recently introducted legislation that landlords are required to provide a source of heating that is able to heat the main living area to 18 degrees. The World Health Organisation says that 18 degrees is for sleeping, though.

I guess the idea is to keep people frozen out of their bedrooms and cold enough for communal sleeping. You have to work really hard to have the women and children accept that their very own bed is not something that they want to have...

I imagine we want to do longitudinal studies on how Aspergillous grows in 18 degrees communal sleeping environments, now. Compared to how it grew in less than 18 degrees communal sleeping environments, before. Then, after a couple generations we can see how much we can improve things by having 18 degrees in bedrooms... Only 9 or 10 generations before we have 18 degrees and every child gets their very own bed!

Nasty country.

Auckland actually isn't all that much warmer than Dunedin. I mean to say that I brought a digital room thermometer and my house is around 14 or 16 degrees.

I am so f*ck*ng tired of needing to cry for basic needs all the f*ck*ng time because the government officials are too busy trying to make their own personal fortunes off of being slum landlords.

I know they choose not to heat their own homes... Then say that the money they saved by their choosing to be thrifty was the money they used to leverage their getting to become slum landlords...

But the fact they didn't legislate to prevent precisely that (the fact they chose to profiteer from it) should be criminal.

In some court or other.


I wonder if they would prefer Downer to manage their detention facility or would rather their cronies managed it?

I suspect that tells you everything you need to know...
