The so-called zero budget isn’t even accurate. It gives the impression that no new money will be spent yet government expenses are set to rise by around $4billion (from $69.6billion – 2011/12 to $73.7billion – 2012/13) which is hardly chicken feed. Brighter future? Not with this budget. My advice: better get a flashlight and make your way to an airport nearest to you... while it’s still open.
