Cullens' advance auction

As with the election date for which we all wait with rapt attention as Helen bides her time, so too with Thursday's budget from which tantalising hints are being dropped like pearls of cod-liver oil to a brood of waiting children.

This will of course be an election year budget, so it will be as H.L. Mencken acerbicly observed of such things "an advance auction of stolen goods," but Nanny Cullen is being unusually coy. See here.

What will Nanny give us this Thursday? How much of our money will Nanny let us keep? Will we get some back as this man wonders this morning? And should we be grateful if we are allowed to keep some.

And is there a better way? More over the next few days.
