Today is All Fools Day, to give it its full name.
On this day in the Year of Our Lord 2019, Mr the Honorable Josh Frydenberg MP pro tem, is putting the finishing touches to a work of fiction which forever will be known as the 2019 Federal Budget. It will FORECAST a surplus, not deliver one. It is worth noting that the final calculations and prognostications will be made on this All Fools Day.
Yet we, the voting electorate, will be expected to take this year’s budget seriously.
