MEDIAWATCH: The Block property speculation porn sums up all that is obscene about NZ inequality

The Block final auction: Auckland friends Tim Cotton and Arthur (Arty) Gillies walk away with $760,000 after huge auction

Auckland friends Tim Cotton and Arthur (Arty) Gillies have been crowned The Block champions, pocketing a record $760,000 – and the other three teams are also walking away with impressive profits in the red-hot Auckland property market.

The pair have pocketed a $660,000 profit plus $100,000 in prize money, making them $760,000 richer after their house was sold at auction for $2,825,000.

Is it just me or did The Block manage to sum up everything that is wrong about our culture and economy?

Fetishised property speculation porn as mass entertainment in a country of homelessness & poverty.

I wonder if State House tenants tuned in? The auction will be the closest they ever get to home ownership.

It’s as equally harrowing as the thought of all those hungry children watching MasterChef or MKR.

I wonder if those hungry children lick the TV screens.

Someone should firebomb the house before anyone moves in and call it performance art.

Fuck this broken market!
