Crikey says: no surplus, no cry

Merry Christmas, Tony Abbott: Wayne Swan gifts the best election ad possible. Bernard Keane and John Quiggin weigh in. We're giving out presents to the best of arts and culture in 2012. How Screen Australia ran out of money -- six months early. And 2UE pushing its shock jocks to the centre.

We hate to burst everyone’s bubble. We know it’s nearly Christmas and actual news is becoming thin on the ground. But we should calm down about the government’s “probable” abandonment of its commitment to surplus this financial year. One reason: perspective.
