Swanomics – Big Words For A Small Mind

29 Feb

Today in Question Time, our esteemed World’s Greatest Treasurer loudly let us know that he’s learnt a new phrase from his Treasury puppeteers.

“Horizontal Fiscal Equalisation”.

Now that he’s finally mastered the ability to repeat one 4 syllable and one 5 syllable word in the same sentence, Wayne wants you to know that he is a “strong supporter” of it.

Quelle surprise.

    I must agree with Dave about the Goose who is our worse than useless Treasurer.

    It is a big word:

    Briefing Paper No. 21/2003 by John Wilkinson

    Horizontal Fiscal Equalisation was originally devised as a principle for distributing federal government grants to the states and territories, but has now become the basis for apportioning GST revenue (pp.1-8)
