Well, Mr Hockey’s first budget is over. TV has killed the budget speech itself. You don’t need to listen beyond getting a a rough feel.
In a comment to a blogging friend, I said go through the budget speech and rule out all the rhetoric. You have to leave in some things that may be cast in rhetorical terms but are critical to following the thread. Look how little there is.
Think I’m wrong? This the budget speech. Try it.
