Boo Hoo, not enough in the overnight budget from the Finance Minister for those who are struggling. It doesn't matter a damn to me, I'll make my own way no matter what the policies are but I can't help feel responsible for those on a low fixed income. The opposition, well ahead in the polls, were irresponsible in saying they would give $50 a week so dear Mr Cullen had to empty the coffers to play catch up. I don't envy the Finance Ministers' job no matter who gets in at this years election.
It doesn't help that our Australian cousins are doing well on the back of a huge mining boom and the Government is being free and easy with the money. We just can't compare our little economy with theirs.
