Hold on to your wallet
Let’s be clear.
Wayne Swan will deliver a budget surplus ONLY because they’ve taken key expenses like the $37 billion dollar NBN off the books.
Gotta love how they’re pushing a “fall in tax revenue” when the government rakes in about $100 billion more than it did during the Howard/Costello Rivers of Gold years that they keep shitting on about.
Still managed to pump out $40 billion plus deficits year after year.
Anyway, the photo the Wayne supplied had him looking very prime ministerial… not bad for the eurozone’s treasurer of the year.
Nice spin, hardcore Wayne.
That fucking over-tanned goose. Still, gotta give him credit for not spending like a drunken foreigner in Korea.
If only he really were cutting back on doshing out our cash. It’s gonna backfire on the Wayne because his cunning ploys like removing the NBN were exposed yesterday.
