I am not sure that I can phase this helpfully as a Monday Forum topic, but I will try.
In advance of the release of the Australian Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook tomorrow, the Australian Government is clearly trying to clear its lines to present the whole thing as another Labor disaster, a clean-out by the new management. Then, too, we have the debate now raging over the NBN (National Broadband Network) whose message seems to be that everybody's plans are too costly!
Now this is your mission, should you choose to accept it. Stand back from party affiliations and look at the discussion over the last week, the MYEFO that will come out tomorrow and the response. What conclusions would you draw?
That's an open-ended question, allowing you to go in any direction you want.
