Following the Bartlett tsunami the Premier has managed to point the State in roughly the right direction from a budgetary aspect although she is still being sparing with her analysis of our predicament if the media release (here) which accompanied the release of the State’s Mid Year Financial Report MYFR is any guide.
The Premier is struggling to send a positive message when she reverts to the old line that “the Report showed the Government remained on track to avoid going into net debt”.
Most readers would draw the fairly obvious conclusion that we are net debt free.
But nothing could be further from the truth.
In a week when forest protesters were severely chastised for their lack of truth one may have expected the Premier to choose her words more carefully.
