Tues, 11am, Treasury, Canberra, phone rings.
“Josh, treasurer-to-be, speaking”
“Mate, it’s ScoMo. How good is today? We need to postpone income tax cuts & give voters a good reason why.”
“Let’s say previous govt deceived us & left the budget in a terrible mess”
“Josh!”

The Jones/Credlin 1.3% of 3% of 0.4% carbon stat is about as credible as saying "it's just one o-ring" to the space shuttle Challenger crew, telling a melanoma patient it's only a small mole, or home renovators that asbestos fibres are microscopic.

@declanf @theageI've often had long, engaged conversations with Gen Zs over a Kiwi sauv blanc in Melbourne laneway bars about the Menzies tradition, comparing our fave policy reforms of the '60s. And oh how we laugh over Fraser sticking it up Bjelke-Petersen on environmental issues in the 70s.

One economic consequence of 4 million #ausvotes pre-poll votes is if just 1 in 10 had bought a $3 #democracysausage tomorrow - let's say the profit margin is $2 - that means public schools will miss out on $800,000 in top up funding from their P&Cs. #Auspol

Let's back this up. If you get $2,100 in franking credits, you're also getting $4,900 in dividends. The average dividend yield is 4-5%, so your share portfolio is worth min. $100k - outside super, pension or any other income. #qanda #auspol

Tonight’s “back in black” #auspol #budget19 is like convincing yourself household spending is under control because you bought two winning $2 Scratchies (one paid out big with 3 coal symbols, the other 3 iron ore ones) and thus any structural deficit in family budget is solved.
