I'll start then. Just heard some of Mr Anthony Albanese reply to the BUDGET of Morrison and Co.

I commend him for his proposals and concepts, so removed from Govt dogma.

Refreshing and I hope people listen and take his words to heart.

I watched part of Albanese’s Reply. I thought he waffled too much, was more like a campaign speech.

We are in for the mother and father of all recessions—even depression—and suggest anyone on government benefits keeps a fair bit of money as cash. The fucking Libs have already frozen pensions, is a pension cut too far away? Don’t think so. What about PS pay, that going to be frozen/cut too? Probably. Sounds a lot like The Premiers Plan Scullin had to adopt because the Commonwealth Bank would not advance him money for public works—Australia had one of the hardest and deepest Depression in the Great Depression and those times are going to come back. Will homeownership be included in the pension asset test? Very likely.

Will the stupid Indue card be rolled out very widely—doubt it, the company running it is totally inefficient, costs $10,000 per client per year, not a budget saver then.

So in the face of a Depression the idiot Libs will go and cut the spending power of people who HAVE to spend all the money they get while having given big tax cuts to people who will save them. Stupid, but it is the (neo)Liberals so goes with the territory.

Well I see this as a very narrow budget. Personally..? I'll get $250 in December and $250 in March. No mention of an increase a la CPI.. because the CPI didn't increase..this yr.. NO GROWTH...

but I seem to recall them saying they'd address that. (LIE)

WELL FRANKLY.. FFS

... I'd much rather a base rate increase to the pension , rather than 2
pissweak $250 fucking dollars.!! payments..


These guys really want to buy votes, but they sure aren't interested in the folk existing on the minimum.

TAX CUTS.? Means nothing to me, or anyone else below the tax threshold... all the people that spend every cent on surviving are ignored. :mad

your posting at 3am and you think you will get a answer ??????
ahem First post was before midnight. so don't give me BS. NONE of you cared because you got a tax cut.. yahoo for you.

The cheek of the prick calling it a "Morrison Recession" when his party was contributor to how to deal with the Covid.

Even a simpleton could workout what his main policy would be, buying working mothers votes!

At least he is still promoting a communist Inspired concept!

Those that were at home getting jobseekers, still could offload their child burden into taxpayers funded dumping facilities for children!

I couldn't believe that Morrison got conned into it!

When I talked with Annie here, she being in Berkeley CA I downloaded a world clock, kept it in a tab. Eventually it settled into a pattern and I closed that tab. SA time is 16 hours ahead of Pacific time. When I chat on Saturday afternoon my yankee buddies are in their Fri evening/night. (eventually drunken slurs on top of several flavors of yankee accents gets a bit hard to follow so I make an excuse and log off.

So none of you give a fuck about the Budget. None of you care about Australian politics. Why AM I HERE.

I don’t think the Budget matters—will be destroyed with another major outbreak.

We need Aussie Bonds again, give savers a break. Damn stupid RBA!

Too much money was given to the rich as tax cuts. Madness! Do hospitals need more money?
