I am interested in the spin that is preparing us for next week's budget. We are being told that the need to increase pensions to aged and other pensioners will be a major driving force in making this a harsh budget. Tax cuts will be lessened or forgone in order to pay for increases to pensions.
Isn't it just as true to say that the commitment to massive increases in military spending are a major contributing factor?
I don't hear our beloved PM or Treasurer saying you will have to forego your tax cut so we can buy more weapons.
