Much hype and expectation on "Budget Eve".
Will Turnbull-Morrison deliver?
Anybody care to hazard a guess?
I have listened in at tonight's QandA and a few comments touched on early concerns and expectations. "The SINKs and DINKs will have to shoulder the Load", one comment read. That seems to sum it up, if it's true that Business tax rate and top income will indeed be protected.
Given the current composition of the Lib-Nat backbench in particular, I find it difficult to see room for a more socially-conscious new direction.
Still, I'm prepared to give MT the benefit of the doubt that he may be trying to do what's best for the broad population, not just his Merchant and Banker mates. But the pessimist in me finds himself right more often...
