    When is the budget?

    I can predict part of the budget.
    Smoke and mirrors department budget increased by 200%, with additional access to disaster management budget when needed.

    DHB’s need a big handout most looking down the barrel of big deficits for 2016/17

    • Colonial Viper 3.1

      DHBs have been chronically underfunded by both Labour and National

      Alternatively they can just start turning people away

    Not to forget a huge increase in funding to the pure BS department. The effects of which will be especially noticed during discussions of debt.

    Prediction – Labour’s Little and Robertson do their prebudget speeches, after the budget comes out they’re caught with egg on their faces.

    Opposition parties doing prebudget speeches is fought with dangers, extreme circumspectual narratives, wrapped in common sense are required – otherwise the opposition is giving the National Government fodda for post budget debate.

    lots of negative comments above typical of what is happening in our country and why our country is in such a mess too many people worried only about themselves

    • DoublePlusGood 6.1

      The negative comments are because bad things are happening, not the cause of them.
