As with most budgets, it will be forgotten by the end of the week, and most people won't notice any difference in their daily lives. Budgets are not about us, but about "them".

So the "body language" of senior Labor politicians on Budget night revealed lack of enthusiasm?

Hardly surprising.

At least one piece of Budget news would completely baffle them.

The billions being spent on hydrogen subsidies.

The truth will slowly dawn.

Willful Wicked Waste.

Don't forget the $500,000.000 to football in PNG. Extremely important for the homeless & industries battling for survival in Australia

Indy...not even organisations like Mission Australia - Red Cross etc can accurately give figures of the actual numbers of homeless, rough sleepers and others around Australia who bed down without adequate protection or nutrition each night. Meanwhile the "Panem et circences" go on in every city...phallic structures, new playing stadiums, bridges, airports, rail corridors and freeways, doing exactly what to address, even just barely, the estimated 120,000 new houses needed to alleviate the housing shortage ? China's Uncle Xi has an answer: Cities in every Chinese province with vacant high rise buildings capable of housing 150,000 or more. Your new homes await good and faithful Aussies ! Comrade Albanese has it all sorted...re-education thrown in as well.

Jim Chalmers has been a great disappointment. He is an avowed fan of Paul Keating, but much of what this government has done with fiscal and economic policy has been to try to jump in a time machine and take us back to the days before the waves of reforms begun under Hawke-Keating and built on by subsequent governments. They are old-fashioned protectionists and interventionists, picking winners, lacking fiscal discipline, bestowing privileges on their union mates without regard for the economic consequences, making populist attacks on retailers and other businesses but with no real plan to sustainable boost wages growth by raising productivity or encouraging competition.

Sad really.

Again, another piece of ideological clap trap based on right wing opinion. The article presents baseless personal observations as facts, there's even a claim that the Finance Minister is after the Treasurers job, why, because she is a woman. GY is able to determine this was a bad budget by "looking at the body language' what on his telly?

If you were able to catch Dud Duttons budget reply speech, and any follow up interviews with the Oppositions chief fool, you would then realise how relatively fantastic this Labor government is.
