The deficit blows out to record levels and the party that promised us balanced budgets increases its lead in the opinion polls. Such is the meaningless way of politics.
Though with those polls it is a case of paying your money and taking your choice between a whopping big lead and a modest one.
First up Morgan. L-NP increases lead over ALP – now 57.5% cf. 42.5%; biggest lead for Coalition since being elected in 2013.
Then Essential. Liberal National 52% Labor 48%
And both of them claiming to measure what the Australian public thinks.
What a nonsense all of them are.
