The fetish for a budget surplus
If we didn't have a rancid political climate, we'd be in a better situation with the budget according to John Stanley. The Coalitions will win the next election, we have been badly lead, and that will be shown with wild budget cuts.
Defence Minister Stephen Smith is scrapping some projects will save the budget bottom line almost two billion dollars. Jason Morrison says money is splashed about on garbage, but cutting core responsibilities puts us at risk.
If the solution to illegal boat arrivals is to find more places to put people with Australian families, then leadership is in dire straits. Jason Morrison on the $300 offer to take in refugee families, as detention room runs out.
No more opinion polls required, voters have made their mind up. The latest poll puts the Coalition support at an 11 year high. Jason Morrison says, there is now no coming back for Labor, the trust has gone for the PM.

My mechanic in the north shore was telling me the Lieberal trolls are going around trying to persuade mechanics to increase their charges saying they should be doing it because of the carbon tax.Terrence Wednesday 9 May, 2012 - 10:45 PM
I was confident all along they would be able to deliver a surplus, but I don't think it was really necessary. They could have gone a little bit into deficit and made some more productivity gains. Anyway, it probably had to happen for political reasons, and that is Labour's fault too for allowing itself to fall into this "surplus" trap. In any case, I think it will probably do some good in that it will further enhance the credibility of Australia in the eyes of the world when no western country is able to produce a surplus. The remarkable thing is that they did it in a responsible way and did not take their eyes off the lower and middle class which they had been prone to do lately in trying to woo the big end of town.Terrence Tuesday 8 May, 2012 - 11:56 PM
Simplistic @Pete says; "so the Mechanic's giving advice on the Carbon Tax now".. advice from the mechanic's accountant, you stupid idiot. [Told me that with Labor's carbon tax, after July 1st, it would cost an extra $40 dollars just to service/gas my Toyota air conditioning: 'you better do it before then and save yourself $40'.] Leave it alone son.Ryan Tuesday 8 May, 2012 - 3:51 PM
This is outrageous, a political party is endeavouring to honour an undertaking it gave us. They can't do that can they?James W Tuesday 8 May, 2012 - 1:28 PM
@Ryan so the Mechanic's giving advice on the Carbon Tax now , wonderfulPete Tuesday 8 May, 2012 - 11:25 AM
One thing the carbon tax hasn't affected is the desperate scare campaign from the Lib trolls.mick Monday 7 May, 2012 - 9:04 PM
