Never a fan of picking faces for supposed diversity, but that was a strange choice of labor - maybe targeting the One Nation vote? It was very targeted.

And now we have a Morrison budget that apart from punching down on job seekers (fairly pointlessly) looked for all the world like a centre-left budget.

It's bizarroland.

Great, yet more income tax - how about cutting some spending first before raising taxes - there are more than enough passengers (aka civil servants). Chop some of them and give the money saved back to the people

This is not a conservative government - but then the electorate is not prepared to listen to listen to reality and would rather hear fairy tales instead

Yeah it was a bit weird. I do wonder if they were going after the One Nation vote too.

Maybe it was centre left, the housing part was looking after the investor though. No penalties there, just throw money at the FBH and watch prices go again. Time to invest in your 5th and 6th investment property. Jump on board.

We found the implementation of a Tobin tax on banks interesting because we thought consumers would likely face a direct increase in interest rates as a result.
