Peter Saunders the social research director at the minimal government think tank, the Centre for Independent Studies in Sydney, fights the good fight in his damning critique of smug Peter’s new budget:
I agree with most everything he says but it’s a sad day that i cant find in myself any of the indignation he clearly feels. A big spending budget that (barring the university fund) lacks vision and is designed to bribe the populace? A budget that sees the government retaining if not increasing its hold on power?
But surely that’s the whole point of government these days.
