In today's email we look at the latest poll results, ask whether the Accommodation Supplement increase will simply be captured by landlords, discover that our intelligence service has concerns about Trump, and dig into the Point England housing debate.
In today's email we look at what might be in tomorrow's Budget, and we watch the continuing debate over house building in Auckland.

In today's email, the debate between Labour and the government over their house building plans flares up again, this time over Labour's opposition to two large building projects in Auckland, as well as its migration plans.
