Budget Day …
This is brilliant. (So brilliant, you must go visit Motella to thank him for it.)

Feel free to post Budget thoughts and updates in the comments as this afternoon’s announcements unwind.
UPDATE: Yes, as predicted it is an eat-the-rich budget. A lolly scramble of new spending in health, education and welfare—which means new borrowing on top of existing borrowing—zero budget, my arse!—and a huge $78.5 million increase to the IRD audit goons to attempt to gouge this out of taxpayers.
Things are going to get very nasty indeed in the next few years.g.
