I suspect that the good people of Epsom, Remuera, Pukranga, Khandallah, Fendalton, and other leafy upper middle class suburbs will soon be screaming blue bloody murder at their ACT and National MPs when developers over-ride local objections and build high-rise monstrosities that are utterly inappropriate for the neighbourhood.

This will be one instance when National/ACT voters get the consequences they voted for, and richly deserve.

Ironically, low-income earners and welfare beneficiaries will probably be least affect (in the short term) by Nick Smith’s  RMA “reforms”.

Keep an ear open. The screaming is about to begin.
