A few budget predictions Cremation

The Budget Draws Near

May 8th, 2007 at 06:30pm

And Greens leader Bob Brown claims to have been handed full costings for the budget’s environment spending. He calls the amounts being spent “a massive let down” and “a slap in the face for Australians hoping to see big spending on environmental issues.”

The figures he claims to have been handed and subsequently released, if true, do indeed fit his descriptions, but I think he has been handed a dud…a bit of Liberal trickery to get him all hot under the collar and jumping up and down on the one spot shrieking about how horrible it all is, only to be made look like a fool when the spending is much higher later on in the night…naturally, if that is the case, the environment spending will get an awful lot more coverage than it would otherwise have received, thanks to Senator Brown’s angry noises.
