Personally I think we’ll get a fairly muted budget with the focus not on the economy. I suspect that the major focus will be developing a platform for Gordon Bron to jump off on his campaign for PM. So I expect a lot of past record back patting, talking up of the economy and stability while any pledges are politically motivated – a green tax or two is a sure thing.
