Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: It's an interesting tactic, but the National Party of New Zealand clearly believe that renters and workers won't bother voting in the 2020 election because they are promising that if National become the Government they will remove renter rights and scrap any plan to raise the minimum wage.

Last week Simon Bridges told New Zealanders that if elected, National will scrap the Healthy Homes standards that are forcing Landlords to make their rentals warm and National are promising to reverse rules that stop Landlords using tax loopholes.

The combination of both changes would help speculative Landlords while making rental houses colder and damper for tenants.

On top of this, National are considering to stop the minimum wage from rising to $20 per hour to help pay for those rental properties.

By promising to punish workers and renters, National are clearly showing who they want to support post-election and it's not the poorer parts of the electorate.

National has always been accused of being the Party for Farmers, Bankers and property speculators, these two policy announcements last week suggest that accusation is completely legitimate.
