With an abundance of thought bubbles emanating from Government sources, the future appears to be as confusing as the past has been.
Fixing our Economy seems to be high on the agenda, and so it should be. But exactly what to do is a bit of a quandary for them.
I suspect, that if they had any “Terms of Reference”, a Para might exist which reads something like; “Make effective financial changes, which vastly improve our Economy’s situation whilst making us far more popular”. (And good luck with that!!).
Taxation changes, privatization, spending cuts, big biz concerns, education and health are just a few of the many elements in the mix which may affect the next Budget.
But so far, we’ve seen such a variety of signals send out, amended and disputed, that anything could happen, and probably will.
To those decision makers I say, “Don’t stuff it up, it may be your last chance”.

Politicians are no different to anyone else in the country, except they have been vested, by the people, with the authority to run the nation in accordance with all applicable documentation. They are employed by the people, who (supposedly) consider them to be leaders, to make decisions for the benefit of the country and its citizens, AND to behave in a statesman like manner.
Unfortunately, within our current political world, the number of politicians with these desired qualities has diminished. Very few Pollies behave appropriately. They’re focussed firmly on discrediting any messenger with an adverse message. They put most of their energy into maintaining their own political career. Very little of their time and energy is left to run the country in an appropriate manner.
Many of them seem to think they are better than the average person, up on a pedestal, and as such are entitled to a champagne lifestyle. This possibility could be considered if we had full employment, no homeless, and free education for every child.
Regardless of who is to blame for this situation, there’s only one group who can repair the damage. The politicians.
Hence, we can only pray and live in hope (and vote).
