Yurts for the Masses Political Fix

In the wake of a massive backlash against the effective shelving of the former Howard Governments plan to bankrupt the country by putting a photovoltaic cell on every middle class home in Australia and the worst housing affordability crisis since the white man came and as a means of showing solidarity with the Tibetan People, the Rudd Government has made a multi million dollar purchase of Yurts.

Yurt and Land Packages, to be sold in an affordable price bracket in the outer suburbs of major metropolitan areas, will be offered on means tested basis for families earning less than $250,000, to assist striving Australians to get into the housing market. To demonstrate their green credentials, a free Yak, and trailer to provide of cheap environmentally sustainable transportation, a yak poo cooker and power generation system have been thrown in along with a wind up computer and free fibre to the yurt broadband.

"We just want to give these guys a leg up before the next election. We are worried that they could be picked off by a rejuventated uber Green Coalition at the next election" said a spokesman.

Australia has priced itself out of existence to the point where the young cannot marry and have a home any more.

It is very tough to enter the housing market. We just bit the bullet and we earn around 100k between us. We have a very average house in the suburbs and the mortgage is very scary. OK if you have been in the market for a while, but tough to get started.

Two of my colleagues are male single and still living at home in their mid thirties. Now that is scary.

Buying or renting a home these days is expensive beyond wildest thoughts. I was 2 days off living in my car with my children because affordable housing just wasn't in existence. Yes there was plenty around, but at a cost of over $350 AUD per week. A lot of those houses are what is considered a dump.

It's a frightening future for our kids. Feral Queen, my eldest, and her 2 house-mates have been applying for another rental property for over 6 months but they miss out as other applicants offer the whole years' rent upfront/more money for rent, or the houses are falling down hovels you wouldn't put a stray dog in. They have to move as the owner of their current property wants to demolish and build over-priced town houses.
