Under the category “LETTER OF THE WEEK” The New Zealand Herald published a letter re the housing crisis from a C. Williams of Mt Albert.
The heading they put on it read, “Profit motive clashing with right to a home”.
The contents of the letter were nonsense and included the following newly invented rights.
“A basic right for people to have a warm, safe, stable roof over their head.”
The author C. Williams is plainly not too bright, but the real puzzle is how this absurdity could be declared the letter of the week, a terrible slur on the newspaper’s other contributors.
Having penned this I shall now exercise my basic human right to have a glass of red.
