Budget 2018

May’s Federal Budget, the standard script.
The lock up from which no one escapes!
Winners! (Everybody rejoice).
Losers! (No one important).
Next the wide-eyed superficial analysis.
The breathless interviews with families singles, couples, pensioners, wage earners, etc fully economically briefed.
The joyously satisfied interest groups.
We always set aside the whispers and whispers of the few saddened forgotten people excluded from the calculations.
The off-script shock realisation…
Income tax cuts and corporate tax cuts require spending cuts from the people that don’t matter.
