Good afternoon and welcome to Midweek Mayhem, our middle of the week idle chit-chat thread.
Of course, the big event this week was the release of the 2009 Federal Budget, which, by all accounts, was not as drastic as were lead to believe – apart from the resulting deficit of course.
The Liberal party is quick to point out that this is the largest Budget Deficit in Australia’s history while Labor maintains it is not as as severe as the deficits being seen in other developed countries, particularly in Europe.
Tomorrow night we will have our very own LIVE BLOG as Malcolm Turnbull delievers the Opposition’s Right of Reply, so stick around for that one. It’ll be fun!
Anyway, feel free to talk about anything else that’s on your mind, and also a reminder that if anyone has topics that they’d like to post for discussion just send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll publish them…
