Crikey says: the base has spoken

Cambodia isn't safe for Australia-bound refugees -- or anyone. More budget spin: Myriam Robin goes inside the process. And Tony Abbott's words come back to haunt. Sydney's overblown crime problem -- the draconian laws weren't needed. It's women who love the monarchy, Essential Research finds. And we hang out with Australia's best female writers.

It’s a mug’s game, budget speculation: strategic leaks to test the wind, hurried re-writes when the reaction is volatile.

    Actually, the ‘Tony Tax’, while certainly not the best option, would be better than nothing, as it would take some of the heat off those at the bottom who are least able to cope with less income from whatever cuts this lot dream up.
    But if the ‘glitterati’ are going to complain about this small impost, then what hope is there for repairing the structural deficit in the budget? Abbott and his motley crew are NOT going to do the hard yards and deal with the middle-class welfare rorts if this is the reaction they get from a half-baked scheme.
    Where is the leadership we sooooo badly need!!
